Important information for those seeking funding for our Master’s programme on a part-time basis
HEE is encouraging all those who wish to study the Master’s degree on a part-time basis in this academic year (2016/17) to complete their applications for funding as soon as possible. At the moment this year is the last year for full funding for a part time Masters programme – although we are working to try and extend this. Courses commence at our ten academic partners in September and October 2016 and we recommend you secure your funding in advance of taking up your place. Any professionals who have already been awarded funding for their part time Master’s study are reminded to take up their place this year to avoid any future funding concerns.
Although this applies to the 2 year part-time Master’s in Genomic Medicine there is still plenty of time and funding to think about doing a PG Certificate or PG Diploma and of course single modules for CPPD.
CPPD modules can be taken without assessment if you just want to update your knowledge.
The Master’s in Genomic Medicine and associated CPPD courses have been designed to support the transformation of the NHS through the development of genomic technologies and interventions, in particular to support the work of the NHS England Genomic Medicine Centres and the 100,000 Genomes Project. The course and CPPD Modules are aimed at NHS healthcare professionals working in England from the full range of professional backgrounds and groups (such as medicine, nursing, healthcare scientists and technologists).
The popular part-time study route allows students to balance work and home life with their studies, and the choice of optional modules also allows students to learn more about Genomics in a way that is more relevant to their day to day role.
