We are not taking new applications for this programme. We are working to validate new programmes to start in September 2022. In the meantime, you can undertake some modules on a stand-alone basis and transfer the credit into a programme later.
All modules are 15 credits unless otherwise stated
This pathway is ideal for the newly qualified graduate workforce and those who wish to specialise in Cancer Care whilst developing academically. The range of optional modules allows students to develop areas of particular professional and clinical interest.
You can also apply for modules on the programme on a stand-alone basis. If successful these will be added to your programme when you enrol.
This module is in association with:
Health and social care practitioners working to further their education and professional development within the speciality of cancer to enhance practice.
Costs vary depending on the choice of optional modules. Due to the flexibility of the structure, the pathway cannot be purchased as one unit. Please purchase the individual modules that you would like to undertake during an academic year. Module fees may increase in subsequent academic years.
