Fitting in education can be a challenge when working as a healthcare practitioner.

Our work-based learning option gives you the chance to achieve an academic qualification, without putting your career on hold. You’ll learn from your experiences in the field and sharpen skills vital to your role.

Taking a short course at King’s can be just the beginning of your professional and academic development. Our short courses are individual modules, which make up core and optional components of our degree and diploma courses.
  • When you pass a module, you will receive academic credit, which is a way of quantifying and recognising learning whenever and wherever it is achieved.
  • The amount of credit you receive will vary based on the length of the module.
  • If you decide after taking one of our modules that you want to study a degree or diploma course, then you could use the credit you’ve achieved to count towards your overall credits for your chosen degree or diploma course.
