Med Clinical Education is a three year part-time programme for healthcare professionals engaged in clinical teaching and learning as part of their current role, and who already hold the PGCert in Clinical Education.
We designed our programme to appeal to pharmacists, nurses, midwifes, doctors, dentists, radiographers and any other allied healthcare professionals involved in teaching or training other staff.
As a part-time course, the programme is particularly suitable for any professional that wishes to pursue a postgraduate qualification around full-time or part-time work. Again, the programme also offers the opportunity for you to research a specific area of interest in clinical teaching and learning.
According to our philosophy of inter-professional education, you will work with other healthcare professionals to learn how to develop an environment that facilitates learning across and within the multi-professional clinical field.
MEd Clinical Education will give you a deeper understanding of the design, delivery, assessment and evaluation of learning and teaching in clinical settings and higher education.
The programme will also enable you to develop and apply your expertise as a teacher or trainer in clinical settings, and help you cascade your learning to others.
The course draws on expertise from the Faculty of Health, the Postgraduate Medical and Dental Deanery, the School of Medicine, the School of Healthcare Studies, the School of Dentistry, and practitioners from Hospital and Primary Care Trusts.
Med Clinical Education has approval from the nursing and midwifery council (NMC) so that nurses and midwives can receive a recordable qualification with the NMC.

Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).
Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.
All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
