Single modules

BSMS offers a wide range of subjects. Many individual postgraduate taught modules are suitable for study on a stand-alone basis. The majority of modules are run intensively over a five day period and are delivered at the University of Brighton Falmer campus or at nearby NHS centres.

Most modules can be taken either informally for Continuing Professional Development only, or with the option to complete a formal assessment and gain Masters level credits. (It may be possible to use these credits on a postgraduate course at a later date).
