Program description

Advanced Clinical Practice PgDip/MSc

Our innovative portfolio of multi-professional Advanced Clinical Practice (ACP) programmes are aimed at experienced healthcare practitioners from diverse professional backgrounds who wish to expand their role and advance their level of practice towards Advanced Clinical Practitioner status. They are best suited to practitioners whose employer has agreed to support their development to ACP level in a specified role.

As well as the MSc and PgDip, this course is also available as a Master’s-level apprenticeship. Four different pathways are available: Generic, Critical Care, Musculoskeletal or Urgent and Emergency Care. The degree title you are awarded will depend on your pathway.

These pathways are normally taken part-time, over 2 years for the PgDip and 3 years for the MSc. You will attend St George’s 1 or 2 days per week during module weeks, with additional self-directed study time managed by you and negotiated with your employer, where required (eg for project work or supervised practice).

Our courses meet all the requirements set out within Health Education England’s Multi-professional Framework for Advanced Clinical Practice in England (HEE, 2017) and the Integrated Degree Apprenticeship Standard (ST0564).

Admission requirements

Applicants will need to meet all of the following criteria:

  • hold an Honours degree (2:2 or above) from a UK or Republic of Ireland university
  • hold a recognised health-related professional qualification and current professional registration
  • have a minimum of two years’ full-time clinical experience (or the equivalent in part-time hours) in health or social care employment, within a clinical service area relevant to Advanced Clinical Practice or the specified pathway they wish to follow (specific requirements and entry criteria apply to some modules and these will be indicated in the module outlines)
  • be employed in a senior clinical role (normally Agenda for Change Band 6 or 7)
  • demonstrate they are working in a practice setting which enables the achievement of the advanced clinical practice outcomes relating to the National Health Education England (HEE) multi-professional ACP Standards
  • provide written evidence that their employer supports their learning and there is the opportunity to develop into a role of Advanced Clinical Practice level
