Acute Medicine (Online Delivery) MSc

Acute medicine is a rapidly evolving specialty, and with many generalist healthcare professionals undertaking acute medicine as part of their daily routines, the MSc in Acute Medicine answers the demand for further tailored education.

A distinctive aspect of our online MSc Acute Medicine course is that it allows healthcare professionals to study at postgraduate level without release from work. With no lectures or webinars at set times, students can fit their studies flexibly around their personal and professional commitments.

The primary aims of the course are to equip students with a systematic understanding of acute medicine, skills in critical appraisal and application of knowledge for direct patient benefit. In addition to this, students will benefit from being taught life-long learning and advanced problem-solving skills that they can apply to clinical practice in acute medicine. This course is offered with our collaborative partner Diploma MSc.

Entry Requirements For This Course

Places are limited so we recommend you apply as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.

Entry to the one-year MSc Acute Medicine programme will require the successful completion of the Postgraduate Diploma in Acute Medicine (120 credits) either from the University of South Wales or from another UK University.

Students may apply for the Masters in Acute Medicine as a two-year course consisting of eight modules (180 credits), the first 120 credits of which being the Postgraduate Diploma.

To secure your place on the course, applicants will typically hold a first degree or equivalent (including international qualifications) in a relevant professional healthcare field, such as a medical or nursing degree. Registered healthcare professionals without these recognised qualifications will be considered on an individual basis and a wide range of prior experience may be taken into account.

In some cases, applicants may be asked to submit a piece of work for assessment in order to confirm that they are able to work comfortably at postgraduate level, and demonstrate the requisite clinical and professional knowledge.

To study over one year you will need to have successfully completed the Postgraduate Diploma in Acute Medicine - either with Diploma MSc or another UK university having completed similar modules. We can discuss this with you as part of your application.

Proficiency in the English Language is also essential to completing our courses. If English is NOT your first language, we ask for proof of competency during the application process. We are able to accept an IELTS overall score of 6.0 (with a minimum of 5.5 for each band) or an equivalent qualification.
