        * Community Based Education

    In addition, students will demonstrate an advanced level of research and evaluative skills through the programme of sustained enquiry into an aspect of primary care policy or practice.

    Two core modules are shared by all routes: research methods (introductory module) and philosophy and politics of primary health care. There are then core modules for each route and these include:

        * health promotion

    Some nursing routes require portfolio-based modules such as practice-based modules or clinical practice.

Students who successfully complete eight modules in the two years will achieve a Postgraduate Diploma in Primary Care and those who also successfully complete a disseratation (accredited as four modules) will be awarded the MSc.
