The course is open to allied health professionals, doctors, nurses, pharmacists and psychologists interested in this field. Applicants should normally have a first or second-class honours degree (2.1 or 2.2) (or overseas equivalent) in a relevant subject or an equivalent professional qualification.
In addition, registration with your professional council is strongly recommended; if this is not obtained then this will severely limit your choice of options since you will not be able to undertake practical clinical modules.
Forms for UK Professional Council registration are available from the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC), General Medical Council (GMC) and Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC). This process can take at least eight weeks, so please do apply early.
All students must have third party insurance for modules that involve practical skills.
All applications are assessed on an individual basis. Applicants should ensure that their personal statements identify why they wish to study this course.
