This is an advanced professional development programme involving coursework, modules, study workshops, and a dissertation. The programme aims to provide graduates with detailed knowledge of intellectual and developmental disabilities and forensic issues. You will develop an evidence-based critical understanding of intellectual and developmental disabilities and forensic issues. The programme encourages values-based, ethically stringent practice and/or research in the subject area. Graduates will be able to take leading roles in public services for children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities and issues.
The assessment methods include unseen examinations, mixture of essays and assignments.
We welcome applications from applicants who have obtained at least a second class honours degree including all the required examinations at a university in the United Kingdom or at another approved university. Mature applicants without a degree are asked to provide evidence of their ability to complete a postgraduate programme successfully, and are eligible to enter the programme following the completion of an assessed task. We encourage international applicants with the relevant academic/professional background and competence in spoken and written English. However, we require them to have some experience of UK services. We also require applicants to have 7.5 IELTS, minimum 6.5 in any element or equivalent in other tests. All applicants are considered on an individual basis and additional qualifications, and professional qualifications and experience will also be taken into account when considering applications.
