Advanced Mental Health Practice (Part-time) - Máster en Práctica Avanzada en Salud Mental
Drawing on contemporary teaching and innovative research, the programme will enable students to develop their professional practice in a highly personalised way. This innovative and flexible course allows you to build a course that is tailored to your needs.
The programme is made up of modules which make up the whole Master´s Degree, but there is an option to opt to leave at that point having earned a Postgraduate Diploma.
The programme is based around three key areas:
recognising and valuing personal professional experience as contributing to academic achievements
addressing the priority needs of the working environment through a contemporary range of practice modules
focusing the application of learning within the workplace
Applicants should normally hold all of the following:
Bachelors degree with honours in a relevant subject
Where the applicant´s first language is not English, IELTS at 6.5 in each area are required
The MSc Advanced Professional Practice presents a highly flexible programme of study which students can tailor to meet their personal and professional development objectives.
An innovative development for this award is the introduction of a Valuing Professional Experience module. Available to study for 20, 40 or 60 academic credits, this module will allow students to demonstrate the value of their professional experience in relation to academic learning. As such, students can, with the help of a programme advisor, create an individual programme of study which draws on past experience and enhances current and future practice.
