What’s new for 2024?

The brand-new MSc in Clinical Exercise Physiology launches this September, offering the chance to kickstart a career that responds to a direct need within the NHS.

There is a real call for university-qualified health professionals trained to support our nation’s health by screening, assessing and applying clinical and scientific reasoning to ensure safety and appropriateness of exercise-based interventions. The course can be completed full-time in a year, or you can study part-time, to gain all the requisite skills, knowledge and clinical placement experience required for professional registration – read more about it in our earlier article.

Also beginning in the next academic year will be the MSc in Clinical Healthcare Technology, with a programme of study designed to develop your knowledge of healthcare technology to improve outcomes.

This online three-year course explores the use of healthcare technologies as a key challenge in society, along with the barriers and enablers to its usage to improve healthcare experiences and outcomes.

Why move on to post-graduate education?

Whether you want to be a festival organiser, a renewable energy expert, a midwife or an accountant, there are many reasons to study at postgraduate level, including fast-tracking your career, changing your job path, or diving deeper into a subject you love.

And ENU have the stats to prove it: 86 per cent of postgraduate alumni were in professional or managerial positions 15 months after study (according to the Graduate Outcomes Survey, HESA 2020/21).

“We don't just focus on excellent teaching; we focus on what students do when they graduate. There's an emphasis on employability, giving students the skills they need to go into the workplace,” says Patrick White, Lecturer for MSc Wildlife Biology & Conservation which celebrates its 25th anniversary this year.
