Exceptional teaching and support
You will learn from academics committed to your personal and professional growth. Our student, Aikaterini, tells us they were “always encouraged and fully supported”.
We are also rated in the Top 5 for Teaching Quality by The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide (2023).
Study around your schedule
This postgraduate Chronic Disease Management course has a flexible structure – you can join full-time or study alongside other commitments.
Work placements: hands-on experience
You can complete a work placement to bridge the gap between theory and hands-on experience. Working in healthcare, you will gain insight into the industry’s demands while building your practical skills.
If you already work within healthcare, you may be able to undertake your placement at your current job.
