Visit the official programme website for more information


As a practitioner involved in health and social care, including citizens, professionals, community leader, you will learn how to bring diverse organisations and people together to develop asset-based innovative solutions to complex personal and community health challenges. The learning approach models the skills and behaviours required to lead collaboratively.

This innovative Systems Change - Collaborative Communities programme at London South Bank University offers both face–to–face and blended learning experiences. The degree is experiential, innovative, ground breaking and open to people who are making a contribution to change in systems with communities. It builds skills in effective collaboration through a combination of taught modules, experiential learning and the completion of a coproduced service change. The highly participative nature of the workshops and groups enables students to experience collaborative leadership and peer learning, exchanging ideas and experiences with the group, and immediately applying new approaches and methodologies to practice. Students are exposed to examples of innovation and have the opportunity to expand their network. 

Our team, drawing together academics with people involved in health and social care, including citizens, professionals, community leaders, all of whom have experience of working in health and care settings, will equip students with a whole systems approach to improving the health and wellbeing of people and communities.
