QMU-Postgraduate Prospectus QMU PG Mini Prospectus 2019 sp - Page 18

Continuing professional development: single module and short course study Whatever qualification you’re considering, remember that QMU is committed to continuing professional development (CPD) and we will always have something more to offer you in terms of further study and developing your career. Single module study You do not have to commit to a full named award (eg MSc, MA etc). You can opt to study individual modules from many of the courses listed in this prospectus. As little as one module will enable you to further your knowledge in your chosen area. Satisfactory completion of a module (including assessments) can provide credit towards a postgraduate award, for which you subsequently register. This option can be particularly useful for those returning to study after many years in work. If you haven’t used your study skills for a while, or you want to try out study at QMU before committing yourself to a full named award, you can start with a single module to build your confidence and prepare you for further study. 16 Please contact the programme leader, listed on the individual course pages on our website to find out which modules are particularly suitable for studying as a stand-alone option. Short courses We also offer short courses developed especially for CPD purposes. Those offered by QMU are mostly (but not exclusively) in the area of the allied health professions (AHPs) and are available to view on our website www.qmu.ac.uk/ study-here/continuing-professional- development-cpd-courses/
