Postgraduate Certificate /Diploma / MSc in Critical Care (University of Buckingham)

September 2, 2024 - August 17, 2025


For healthcare professionals working on the frontline in the fast-paced world of critical care, a systematic understanding of how to manage urgent presentations of life-threatening conditions is essential. A lack of such specialist knowledge can prove fatal.

This newly launched Postgraduate Diploma in Critical Care equips practitioners with advanced knowledge of how to respond to and treat a range of critical conditions including sepsis, poisoning and respiratory failure.

Sepsis alone is one of the highest causes of death globally, currently causing 11 million fatalities around the world each year. To address this figure and several other life-threatening illnesses affecting the population, it is imperative that healthcare professionals working in this field are educated to a high standard.

Studying this Critical Care diploma will equip you with life-long learning and advanced problem solving skills which are directly applicable to practise in critical care scenarios.

Our online Critical Care Diploma enables graduates to provide the rapid diagnosis and referral required in urgent clinical scenarios with certainty. This is a highly rewarding field of medical care to specialise in, offering the ability to significantly improve the quality of patient care and ultimately save lives.

Unlike competitors who emphasise theoretical learning through extensive reading and essay writing, our critical care diploma focuses on practical, clinically-rich scenarios. We offer a multidisciplinary approach, enabling students to apply their knowledge immediately in real-life situations alongside their day jobs.

Our students engage in global discussions and process comparisons with peers from diverse healthcare systems. Our challenge-based learning approach uniquely equips them with a broader understanding of intensive care unit practices worldwide. In addition to improving patient outcomes, this postgraduate qualification will enhance your leadership skills, career progression and increase your employability prospects as you possess high levels of expertise in this important field. Becoming an authority in this specialist knowledge, within a multidisciplinary team, is desirable and achievable on graduation from this programme.

On successful completion of this Diploma in Critical Care, you will:

  • Demonstrate the ability to lead complex tasks and processes in the delivery and advancements of critical care
  • Deliver leadership to teams in multi-agency, multi-cultural and/or international contexts.
  • Gain a systematic knowledge of evidence-based medicine in relation to critical care.
  • Apply relevant knowledge, methodologies and approaches to address patient management across the spectrum of medical specialties caring for patients with critical presentations.
  • Develop the ability to implement best practice and innovation in complex critical care scenarios.
