Modules & assessment

Year one, core modules

  • Leadership Practice in Health and Social Care
    Effective leadership is essential to providing high quality practice in health and social care settings. Staff morale and motivation, retention and recruitment, professional development, quality improvement, service efficiency and effectiveness all depend significantly upon the style and quality of leadership at the front line. This module will empower you to develop the necessary leadership skills in order to become a facilitator and motivator of change in the workplace. The focus is upon contemporary theories of leadership such as transformational leadership, distributive and leaderful practice and the notions which underpin leadership such as personal dispositions, values and skills
  • Research Methodology, Design and Process
    With the increased emphasis on research-based practice over the last decade, it's essential that established practitioners who wish to take further educational programmes are conversant with research methodology and the application of theory to practice in their field.
  • Strategic Management in Health and Social Care
    Organising and delivering world class health and social care requires a set of strategic management skills which are predicated on sound management theories, techniques and competencies. Using this as the underpinning concept, this module will assist you in advancing your contribution by increasing your understanding of the process of strategy formulation and alongside this, the process of strategic implementation.
  • Undergraduate Major Project
    The individual Final Project module allows you to engage in a substantial piece of individual research and/or product development work, focussed on a topic relevant to your specific discipline. The topic may be drawn from a variety of sources including: previous/current work experience, the company in which you are currently employed, an Anglia Ruskin lecturer suggested topic or a professional subject of your specific interest (if suitable supervision is available). The project topic will be assessed for suitability to ensure sufficient academic challenge and satisfactory supervision by an academic member of staff. You will be assigned an academic supervisor who will support you on a one to one basis during your study of this module.

Assessment

Throughout the course, we’ll use a range of assessment methods to help you and your tutors measure your progress on each module. These include reflective practice, essays and a major project, as well as the sharing of ideas and critical thoughts in an online setting.

This is a one year programme

Please note that you will need to complete all of the above core modules. This course does not have any optional modules. Modules are subject to change and availability.

We offer exciting opportunities for research and education in the allied health professions. We also translate science and epidemiology into health education and primary care, and deliver taught Master’s programmes to qualified medics.
