The MSc / MA Health and Wellbeing (Top-up) course at University of Wolverhampton is designed to allow you to ‘top up’ your existing Post-graduate Diploma qualification (or equivalent) in any health, welfare or social care related subject to a full master’s qualification.


The MSc / MA Health and Wellbeing (Top-up) course at University of Wolverhampton caters for both students who are currently working in the health, welfare or social care fields and for students who are not currently working in these fields but hope to enhance their post-graduate skills and knowledge in order to take up such employment. 

The course aims to offer a flexible approach to the topic chosen for your independent study, will foster independence and responsibility in taking control of your own learning and professional development needs, and build on your existing knowledge and experience.

Potential Career Paths

Many students will choose this course because they are already working in the health, welfare and/or social care fields. Gaining this award will enhance their professional development and promotion prospects.

Many of our students go on to achieve new posts as a result of their studies. Often this happens during their course not only after completion. Participating in academic study at any level will encourage analysis and criticality and hence will improve the opportunity for promotion and advancement. 

Successful completion of an academic qualification will facilitate students in providing a justification for progression through the skills escalator and will often act as a catalyst to enable the student to pass through the band gateways. Some Masters level students have used the findings from their independent research studies to make recommendations which they have gone on to implement at work.

Other students may choose this course because they wish to move into the health arena. Our past Masters students have taken posts as public or voluntary service administrators, managers and researchers and as teachers or researchers in Further and Higher Education Institutions.

All students will be able to focus on their particular research interests in their independent research studies. This course allows students to pursue these interests in depth, to engage with current research and to carry out their own, high quality, research studies.

On completion of your Masters degree you can now progress to a Doctorate in Health and Wellbeing, within our Institute of Health Professions.
