The Advanced Professional Practice (Part time) programme offered by the University of East Anglia is based on the four pillars of advanced practice: clinical, research, education, and management. You’ll develop your expertise in leadership, innovation, and change management.  

Visit the official programme website for more information


The overarching philosophy of our programme is that advanced practice is all about a level of practice, rather than a specific professional role. Suitable for all experienced health and care professionals and open to both national and international applicants, it reflects professional, UK-wide government and international benchmarks for advanced level practice for the health and social care workforces.

During the Advanced Professional Practice (Part time) programme offered by the University of East Anglia , you will gain the contemporary knowledge, and skills for advanced level practice. Our aim is to help you to develop an academic preparedness for an advanced professional practice role. All of which is based on the four pillars of advanced practice – clinical, research, education and management/leadership – and the five key principles: autonomous practice, critical thinking, values-based care, improving practice, and high levels of decision-making and problem-solving.

By selecting the optional modules that are relevant to your area of advanced practice, you can tailor the course around your professional practice needs and across the pillars and principles. The emphasis of learning within each of the four pillars will be dependent on the pathway you have chosen, the level of study you’ve opted for and the modules you have selected. So you can build a qualification specific to your individual requirements.


Whether you’re looking for promotion or to improve your knowledge and abilities, complete our programme and you will walk away armed with the skills you require to support your individual advanced practice needs. 

You’ll be able to demonstrate learning across all of the pillars and principles of advanced practice. The emphasis of learning within each of the four pillars will be dependent on the pathway you have chosen and the modules you have selected. Dependent on your role within practice and the modules selected there is also potential for application for credentialing with external bodies .
