This course is one of three pathways within the MSc APIMH. The overall intention of the programme is to enhance access to and effectiveness of mental health and social care services that are evidence based, multidisciplinary and focussed on the needs of patients/service users and carers.

All coursework is electronically submitted by students and is marked online using Grademark and Turnitin. External examiners will be required to use the online moderating process. User guides and support will be made available.

The University appointments for external examiners are normally for a period of 4 years.
