The Health and Education MSc offered by University of Brighton is extremely flexible, and is designed to meet the needs of health graduates in their continuing education and professional development. Each student designs, in consultation with the course leader, their own plan of study choosing from our wide range of modules.
You will be assigned a personal tutor and be able to consult with the course leader before choosing your modules and pathways. This ensures that you have a clear focus on your intended direction before you start the course.
On course graduation, you will be equipped with skills that are directly transferable to health and social care-focused employment. Many of our previous course graduates have progressed into senior positions in their organisations.
During the periodic review of the course a range of local health-related employers are consulted, to ensure that the course content complements the priorities of employers as well as students.
The career planning framework that is integral to this course guides students towards choosing an appropriate and personal route through the programme.
