University of Salford launches new international nursing and healthcare management postgraduate courses

By Owen Williams

The University of Salford is launching a range of nursing and healthcare management postgraduate diplomas designed specifically for international students.

A unique one-year Graduate Diploma in Health will teach the English language within a health context as well as encourage different styles of learning like critical thinking.

Successful students will then be able to choose one of two courses to take their skills onto a postgraduate level.

The MSc in International Nursing will offer practical experience with students learning to deal with certain scenarios with the help of computer-controlled mannequins.

The MSc in International Hospital and Health Service Leadership and Management will allow students to study health economics, decision making and project and change management.

Senior lecturer Dr Debbie Roberts said: “The wider advantage is that highly skilled nurses and healthcare professionals will return to their home countries to share the benefits.”

The programmes will being in September 2012 with the Graduate Diploma in Health beginning in January 2013.
