What are the entry requirements for Advanced Clinical Practice?
This course is designed for qualified health and/or social care practitioners. To be considered for this course, you must have successfully completed at least one of the following:
- A Bachelor's degree
- Other qualifications or experience, which demonstrates that you have appropriate knowledge and skills at SCQF level 10 e.g. a Clinical Decision Making Module
- Two taught modules equivalent to 40 credits at SCQF level 11 as a student of the University through our Affiliate student scheme.
For Advanced Practice (Midwifery), please note that you must have an appropriate midwifery/obstetric nurse qualification with supporting evidence.
In addition, applicants are also required to have:
- Employer approval to study for a clinical qualification in Advanced Practice. It should be recognised that this course requires the development of clinical assessment skills, case management and prescribing (where appropriate).
- An experienced supervisor who has agreed to oversee the development of practice based competence and learning. This supervisor must have extensive knowledge and skills aligned to the field of speciality the practitioner will be working in. This person(s) must be an Advanced Practitioner and/or Medical Practitioner ST3 or above and/or Consultant and/or GP. The practice supervisor must be able to commit to two sessions per month of supervision.
The University does not sponsor students to study on part-time programmes in the UK under the Student Visa route. International Applicants must therefore have other valid immigration leave to study on this programme.
