The Advanced Clinical Practice at the University of Lincoln offers registered practitioners a student-centred programme of study that aims to meet their personal and professional development needs as they progress within their role towards advanced expert practice.

Visit the official programme website for more information


Students will explore advanced practice on both a personal, local, and national level. They will be encouraged to develop a substantial portfolio of evidence illustrating a breadth of practice, while exploring relevant research and developing their own skill set.

The Advanced Clinical Practice at the University of Lincoln is designed to fully integrate the Health Education England (2017) Multidisciplinary Capability Framework enabling registered healthcare practitioners to acquire an expert knowledge base, complex decision-making skills, and clinical competences for expanded scope of practice, underpinned by the four Advanced Clinical Practice pillars of Clinical Skills, Management and Leadership, Education, and Research.

Within the award the combination of modules aims to continuously promote the core principles of Advanced Clinical Practice; Autonomous practice, critical thinking, high levels of decision making and problem solving, values based care and improving practice.

Teaching and learning contextualises the University's ‘Student as Producer’, promoting a coherent approach to andragogic practice via discovery, collaboration, engagement, and the production of new knowledge and new ways of working.

You will be able to develop your abilities across all pillars, evidencing competencies relevant to your area of practice using work-based supervision and tripartite assessment.

The course is open to registered healthcare professionals who meet the entry criteria, through self-funding and the Health Education England funded route.


At Lincoln, we constantly invest in our campus as we aim to provide the best learning environment for our students. Whatever the area of study, the University strives to ensure students have access to specialist equipment and resources, to develop the skills, which they may need in their future career.

An exciting new development for the School, the Sarah Swift Building, is a £19m investment into a dedicated facility for the Schools of Health and Social Care and Psychology. The building houses high-quality teaching, research, social and learning spaces for both Schools. The building will also include advanced clinical simulation facilities for the School’s nursing courses.
