MSc (Palliative Care) (not on offer until 2025/26)


The MSc (Palliative Care) is a part-time, blended learning programme, which includes a clinical placement.

With the approval of the Programme Team the programme can be completed over two years.


  • Entry to the programme is only via the Postgraduate Certificate in Palliative Care. All students will be registered for the Postgraduate Certificate in Palliative Care in the first instance.
  • Any student wishing to complete the MSc (Palliative Care) in the same academic year as the Postgraduate Diploma (Year 2) must discuss this with the Programme Director before the end of June in the previous academic year. Such requests may be granted in exceptional circumstances following consideration by the programme team.
