A Stand Alone Module is normally 3 hours’ contact time per week for 12 weeks, which is then formally assessed. Students who successfully complete a Stand Alone Module may be eligible for entry to our degree programmes.
Each Stand Alone Module is worth 20 CATs points. Where a clinical skills component is included, there may be a requirement for support and supervision of an experienced practitioner within the student’s clinical area. We do offer a limited selection of Level 2 modules, which are designed specifically to prepare you for degree level study. Nurses and midwives who completed their training before 1991 (excluding Project 2000 students) may be interested in taking some or all of these courses. These do not, however, contribute to a BSc (Hons) in Health Studies award. Please note that courses are subject to a minimum registration, so it may not be possible to run all courses each year.
A Stand Alone Module must be completed within one academic semester.
Candidates must normally hold a professional qualification. Note: Some modules require a specific professional qualification. Candidates must have 120 CATs points at Level 1 and 120 CATs points at Level 2 for entry to Level 3 study. Applicants who do not meet the entry requirements should contact the School for advice.
APPLICATIONS ARE NOW CLOSED FOR ACADEMIC YEAR 2018-19.
