The Postgraduate Diploma in Health and Social Practice is a level 8 programme. It can be completed full-time over 1 year or part-time over longer period.

This postgraduate diploma will extend students’ existing qualifications and will allow higher-level professional development that is interprofessional. Students will gain the skills to develop, analyse and generate solutions to complex and sometimes unpredictable problems. This qualification is relevant to practitioners from a wide range of practice contexts, and the resulting interprofessional interaction of health and social services practitioners will enhance and strengthen service delivery in the region.

The aim of this programme is to provide you with greater capacity to work in specialised practitioner, practice leader, manager, educator, or researcher roles either in a student’s current field or within specialised fields of practice which include: working with children and youth, the elderly, people with disabilities, refugees and migrants and in the area of mental health. Graduates can become skilled in a new field, or further advance their current specialisation.

Entry requirement:  An undergraduate degree assessed as relevant by the Programme Manager.

English language required with IELTS score of 7 in the academic band, with no individual band score lower than 7.0.
