We will advise you of your study plan - the running order and availability of the modules - when you are invited to enrol.

If we have insufficient numbers of students interested in an optional module, this may not be offered. In addition, where demand is high, some modules may be subject to a cap.

The course is designed to offer you the flexibility to choose the most relevant pathway based on your own career aspirations and interests.

You will need to complete the following core modules:

  • Advanced Integrative Practice (20 credits) at PG Certificate stage
  • Research Methods in Integrative Health and Social Care (20 credits) at PG Diploma stage
  • Independent Project (60 credits) at Masters stage

You can then choose from the list of optional modules depending on your preferred pathway or specialism. All optional modules are 20 credits.
