    What you'll study The curriculum will be covered in a ‘taught course’ of 3 terms divided into modules. Three modules will be covered in each of the first and second term and two modules in the third term, thus there are 8 taught modules alongside (for students completing the full MSc programme) a 60-credit dissertation module.

Each taught module accounts for 15 credits and each module takes 4 weeks to cover the taught materials including one or more module assignments. Teaching will make use of blended learning methods and the 'flipped classroom' model. This means that you will study a number of elements using online materials including lectures, podcasts, guided reading exercises and so on, with regular face-to-face tutorials in which various activities incorporating individual and group work will help you to consolidate your learning.

In parallel with the taught course, you will have available a programme of clinical observation sessions across several domains including general endocrinology, specialist endocrinology, endocrine investigations and therapies and regular clinical academic meetings.

You will complete a reflective portfolio log-book in which your experiences are mapped to each of the modules.

Following on from the above modules you will work on and complete a dissertation for the remainder of the programme. The project title and research/dissertation format will be agreed between yourself and the course organiser and may take the form of independent clinical research or a dissertation based on clinical cases.

Occasionally, students may choose to omit the dissertation, completing the programme at the stage of postgraduate diploma.
