Key Features

We recognise the importance of service user and carer perspectives when it comes to defining a flexible approach to practice experience and in advancing core and area specific levels of clinical competence.

The Advanced Practice programme from Glasgow Caledonian University gives you exposure to worldwide health and social care perspectives. You will explore further the need to integrate service users and carers views into policy and practice development. And you will develop the confidence to embrace and promote professional leadership - so that you can contribute meaningfully to the modernisation and integration of health and social care delivery.

"Your masters experience will be focused on the four pillars of Advanced Practice; Clinical Practice, Facilitation of Learning, Leadership, and Evidence, Research and Development" (NES 2016)

You will find yourself fully supported and yet challenged, we base our learning and teaching on the following principals:

  • engaged learning
  • divergent thinking
  • flexible, inclusive, accessible learning
  • broad and deep learning
  • global learning
  • real world problem solving
  • entrepreneurship
  • responsible leadership and professionalism

MSc Advanced Practice offers three exit points: MSc, PgD and PgC. You can also choose to specialise and graduate with a named award from Glasgow Caledonian University: MSc Advanced Practice (Musculoskeletal Health) or MSc Advanced Practice (Education in Academic and Practice Settings), a teaching qualification with HEA Fellowship.
