What can I expect out of this qualification?

This philosophy fosters relationships and environments that nurture the development of health and social services scholarship and wisdom for practice. NMIT supports the belief that the best learning opportunities for students in postgraduate study are those which: Are flexible, responsive and always in the direction of the student as an independent learner Are informed by respect and care Challenge students and academic staff members to view the world in different ways to expand their vision Give students the tools to develop/enhance a professional identity which is earned, ethical and values difference Teaching and learning at the postgraduate level recognises students as adult learners and colleagues. It is understood that knowledge is something that is created dialogically. NMIT provides an environment where lecturers and students engage with each other and students enrich their learning through opportunities to share ideas and experiences with each other as groups of inter-disciplinary practitioners. The delivery promotes reflective learning in relation to shared experiences and motivates students to develop enthusiasm for interdependent and independent study.
