CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19)-Plans for the next academic year.
The teaching staff are now beginning to return to the School to resume their academic activities. They are working at a pace to change the way we deliver our courses. Moving forward, we will be using blended and e-learning methods. We aim to roll out the modules, which were postponed during the initial stages of COVID-19, in a phased approach, starting in September 2020, over an eight-month period. This is in line with Health Education England (HEE) who have proposed an extension to the education contract period. This is to allow time for the recovery of commissions that were postponed due to the pandemic.
As you will recognise because of COVID-19, plans are constantly changing so we will, as the situation evolves, endeavour to keep you informed. The health and wellbeing of our staff and students are our absolute priority.
If you do have any questions or concerns, please refer to our Student Q&A page or contact us at Student Support Services for more information.

The advanced practice course includes:
Students tell us they particularly enjoy practising on each other to better understand anatomy and physiology. We also use simulation labs to practise different scenarios and emergency situations, followed up with staff feedback, to help build confidence.
Small classes sizes (up to 18 people) mean our expert lecturer practitioners spend more time with students, offering greater support. Our relationship with The Royal Marsden means you’ll be also taught by working clinical specialists, so the course covers the most up-to-date treatments and research in current cancer care.
The MSc qualification is awarded by the University of East Anglia after you have successfully completed a dissertation.
