Course content

Are you a registered nurse in your country with a nursing qualification at degree level? Would you love to study in the UK to boost your academic qualifications?

We’ll enable you to enhance your academic and professional development by topping-up your existing nursing qualification to masters level within a United Kingdom Higher Education Institution (HEI).

We provide a stimulating and challenging environment for qualified nurses working outside the UK who wish to advance their academic and professional development within a United Kingdom higher education institution. You'll develop a mastery of complex and specialised knowledge as well as a critical awareness of issues at the forefront of nursing practice.

We'll encourage development of conceptual knowledge and advanced understanding of how techniques of enquiry enable the critical and objective analysis, interpretation and application of research and evidence within the international nurse's sphere of influence. Through completion of a dissertation, you'll challenge existing knowledge and facilitate the development of new ideas and new ways of thinking.
