The Advanced Clinical Practice programme offered by the Glyndwr University extends your knowledge and skills to advance levels within your specialist area of practice, through a selection of modules designed to enhance your ability to take on roles in advanced practice.


The Advanced Clinical Practice programme offered by the Glyndwr University aims to enable experienced professionals to: 

  • develop a systematic and critical knowledge and understanding of their specialist field of practice
  • develop a critical awareness of current problems, gaining new insights at the forefront of their area of advanced practice that enable further strategic development of practice and practice knowledge
  • enable practitioners to inform, enhance and develop their competency within their field of practice
  • demonstrate advanced scholarship in their subject area through the planning and execution of level 7 enquiry

The distinctive features of the Masters programme are its 600 practice hours and its focus on the four pillars of advanced practice. This means that the programme produces practitioners who are able to think at a high level in practice, but who also underpin their practice with a high level of scholarship. The programme therefore provides a first-class opportunity for post-registration learning in practice.


On successful completion of the Advanced Clinical Practice/Advanced Clinical Practice (Therapies) course, students will be eligible to apply for advanced practice roles in a variety of settings, and in Wales, students will be eligible to use the title ‘Advanced’ on completion of the MSc. As it is validated by the relevant PSRBs, on completion of the Non-Medical Prescribing module, students will be able to record this qualification with their professional body (NMC, HCPC, GPhC).

On Campus

English requirements

IELTS admission requirements IELTS The International English Language Test System (IELTS) tests your English-language proficiency on a scale of 1 – 9. The score refers to the combined average score of 4 subjects (writing, listening, speaking, and reading).

Other requirements

General requirements

  • If your native language is not English you will need to demonstrate English language proficiency. For undergraduate study, if you’ve taken an IELTS test, we’d look for 6.0 overall, with no band below 5.5.  Alternatively we accept a minimum of 6/10 at Year 7 or 7.5 at Year 6 in English Language from the International Baccalaureate. For postgraduate study, IELTS with an overall score of 6.5 with no band below 6.0 is required.

    If within the last 5 years you have completed at least 2 years education entirely through the medium of English (and have the official academic evidence to support this claim) you may be exempt from having to take an IELTS or accepted equivalent
