    The MA in Leadership and Service Innovation provides a platform from which the student can develop a comprehensive range of skills to enable them to lead innovation and service improvement to meet the challenges required in health, social care and related fields. The programme recruits on a national basis from a range of different professions, for example; nurses, allied health professionals, local government and third sector middle managers and leaders. Two pivotal themes will percolate throughout the course: self-development as a leader and facilitating and effecting change in the organisation and delivery of care.

    Professionals are able to discuss and evaluate the leadership process and the practice of service innovation while exchanging their own experiences and learning. Work based learning is a central tenet of this programme, which enables students to apply and link the theoretical constructs to the practice environment and context. It is anticipated that on successful completion of this programme students will be in a position to consider opportunities in a variety of leadership and service improvement roles.

    Students are required to undertake 3 modules per year and complete a dissertation of independent inquiry.

    UK requirements for international applications

    Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).

    Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.

    All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
