Leadership for the Health Professions, PGDip

If you are a doctor, nurse or other health professional at any stage in your career and you have a leadership or management role, or aspire to one, our MSc Leadership for the Health Professions will help you develop the skills you need to flourish in your career.

Our unique interprofessional, multi-level, leadership development programme has been designed for busy working healthcare professionals, including international students. Our blended learning approach combines face to face contact days supplemented by online learning, tutor, mentor and peer support. You can study on campus, at either Swansea or Leicester, through distance learning, or a combination of both.

This part time programme provides you with theoretical and practical leadership development skills which you can apply across a range of leadership and management situations in healthcare and education. You’ll learn from a unique, case study based approach, where you will consider all aspects of health professionals’ activities from a leadership and management perspective.

Campus Information

Singleton Park Campus

Travelling west on the M4 leave the motorway at junction 42 and follow signs for Swansea on the A483 (Fabian Way). On crossing the River Tawe the A483 becomes the A4067. Continue west along this road, passing Sainsbury’s Superstore on the left-hand side of the road. After approximately 1.5 miles there is a footbridge over the road. The University’s main entrance lies just before the footbridge and is controlled by traffic lights. As you approach the lights, keep to the right-hand lane and prepare to turn right into the University. There is a Visitors’ Car Park immediately right of the main entrance. There are large Park-and-Ride sites at Port Tennant and on the A483 east of Swansea, at Landore, on the A4067 north of the city. All sites are open from 7.00 am until 7.00 pm, Monday to Saturday.
