Introduction

The BSc (Hons) Professional Practice programme, is a professionally orientated programme of study which has been developed as a ‘top-up’ option following discussions with partners, identifying a need for courses which are responsive to both national and local policy and aim to meet the educational needs of the local health professional population.

It provides a degree level qualification from a structured and appropriate post-registration education portfolio consisting of practice focused and research modules. These are aligned with the NHS career framework, which supports the philosophy of Lifelong Learning and clearly links to the NHS Agenda for Change initiative.

The programme is designed to meet the needs of experienced practitioners who wish to broaden their knowledge and understanding of theoretical and policy issues, including research methods and develop their skills to contribute to the changing health and social care system.

The BSc programme consists of courses from the existing LBR portfolio and research focused modules from the BSc (Hons) Nursing. The focus of this programme will be on supporting learning in practice whilst retaining a research element that will provide the opportunity for learners to participate and engage in the academic experience, ensuring that learners are able to apply learned theory to practice.

Entry Requirements

The entry criteria is for all students to have 120 credits at Level One and Two relating to a health professional qualification. It is a modular programme of study which incorporates the University’s credit accumulation and transfer scheme.

Student as Producer

Student as Producer is a development of the University of Lincoln's policy of research-informed teaching to research-engaged teaching. Research-engaged teaching involves more research and research-like activities at the core of the undergraduate curriculum. A significant amount of teaching at the University of Lincoln is already research-engaged.

Student as Producer will make research-engaged teaching an institutional priority, across all colleges and subject areas. In this way students become part of the academic project of the University and collaborators with academics in the production of knowledge and meaning. Research-engaged teaching is grounded in the intellectual history and tradition of the modern university.
