Course Overview

This is a programme leading to foundation degrees (university second year equivalent qualifications) awarded by Liverpool John Moores University with the following titles.

FdA Professional Healthcare Management
FdA Professional Healthcare Management with Informatics

Both pathways provide a broad-based grounding in professional healthcare management. The management pathway has a focus on management and HR skills whereas the Informatics pathway emphasises IT, data analysis and data-informed healthcare.

All awards are available through full- or part-time study and timetables are designed to minimise the number of times that a student would need to travel to College.

Students without a relevant qualification at level 4 will first complete a CertHE Professional Healthcare Management and then progress to complete the FdA. Students with the CertHE Professional Healthcare Management would complete the level 5 modules only.

It is not necessary to select your pathway at the time of application, this can be selected later in discussions with the programme team.

The full-time fee for this programme is £7725 per year. Part-time fees are charged in proportion to the volume of study undertaken, if this programme is taken over four years the fee would be £4120 per year.

The modules for the FdA Professional Healthcare Management are:

Level 4:

Healthcare Management

Candidates should note that the College reserves the right to update the programme periodically and that the offer of option modules is dependent on staff availability and students numbers.

How will the course be assessed?

Most assessment is by a mixture of written assignments, practical work, presentations and online tests. There are no formal examinations at level 4 but two modules at level 5 contain 90 minute written examinations.
