Implementation and Improvement Science MSc: bursaries available for September 2016

King’s College London has a limited number of bursaries available for students wanting to study on our innovative MSc in Implementation and Improvement Science this September 2016.

The MSc is specifically designed for individuals who want to improve health services, equipping you with the methodological and theoretical knowledge to bring about sustainable and large-scale change. The course is practical, yet informed by the latest academic research, and is taught by international experts in the field. The research element of the course provides you with an opportunity to conduct your own improvement or implementation project, or to evaluate an existing project.

Current students come from a variety of settings and backgrounds, including health service researchers, midwives, dentists, occupational therapists, NHS managers and GPs. Studying with students from a range of professional backgrounds provides a unique opportunity to share experiences, draw on real-world case studies, and develop your professional networks.

We are open for home and international students wanting to start in September 2016, and the MSc can be taken on a full or part-time basis. There are a limited number of bursaries available (reducing the Home / EU tuition fees from £9,000 to £7,000). Or you could enrol in the core module, Principles of Implementation and Improvement Science (the tuition fee for this standalone module is £2,200). The deadline for applying for both the MSc and standalone module is 31 August 2016.
