If you want to deepen your knowledge of a specific area of health and social care, our stand-alone Negotiated Studies short course can support you in broadening your skillset and pursuing your career ambitions. You can negotiate a bespoke course of study tailored to your professional development needs.
Mode of Study:
University of Bolton
The University of Bolton's professional development course in Negotiated Studies aims to help you develop knowledge and skills for a specific aspect of your role that will benefit you and your employer. You can choose the area of focus. You may wish to explore a particular issue affecting your work, develop your clinical skills or pursue further study. We'll work with your employer (where possible) to negotiate appropriate learning outcomes and assessment strategies. You'll also have the opportunity to outline plans for your own development and negotiate a programme of study that meets the necessary criteria.
During the work-based programme, you'll be largely responsible for your learning and demonstrating your achievements. We'll also expect you to review your development and assessment plans critically.
Where changes are made to material information contained in this course description or a decision is taken to suspend a course between the offer of admissions and enrolment, we will inform applicants at the earliest possible opportunity and will outline the various options available to the applicant.

Important note regarding tuition fees for the 2022-2023 academic year: EU nationals who meet residency requirements (have settled or pre-settled status) may be eligible for 'Home' fee status.

Please read the student finance for EU students web page on www.gov.uk for information.
The fees for a student's course of study will be set for the normal duration of that course subject only to inflationary increases – measured by the Consumer Price Index (CPI) recorded in March each year to take effect for subsequent start dates.
