If you’re keen to advance your skills and knowledge of diabetes, our multi-professional course is for you. Engaging with a vast body of information about the area, you’ll also develop the professional attitudes that are required to meet increasingly complex demands in diabetes care.
Aimed at all qualified healthcare practitioners, our MSc Diabetes Care is particularly designed for those with an interest in the management of children or adults with diabetes as part of their workload or career progression at a postgraduate level. Whether you’re a General Practitioner, Nurse or Dietician, our course is relevant for all members of diabetes multidisciplinary teams.
Our course will enhance your existing skills and knowledge within this area to an advanced level; both to deliver evidence-based diabetes care, and to exercise higher levels of judgement, discretion and decision-making in clinical care.
You’ll take various modules that will encourage you to learn more about the current trends and issues in diabetes care, and allow you to self-direct your learning to progress your research, management and leadership skills. These modules will also facilitate the monitoring and improvement of standards of diabetes care across health care services including community and hospital settings. We have a diverse range of optional modules, please make sure that you check each module description and their entry requirements to find out if they are suitable for you

Offering people with diabetes the opportunity to access a whole range of expertise, our course will expand your relevant skills and knowledge in this field to meet the expectations of the NHS.

Our course is assessed through a wide range of methods. From written assignments and oral presentations to written examinations, each type of assessment is dependent on the module you’re undertaking.
