Course content

Our diploma is perfect for nurses who already hold a degree but are not yet ready for postgraduate study. We have a variety of bespoke module options to tailor the course to your individual needs. If you wish to continue your studies to the next level, then we can help you focus on your specialisms and work towards greater employment opportunities. You can continue your personal and professional development further by taking this graduate diploma.

You will need to complete an induction prior to commencement of your first module. We have a comprehensive online induction package to welcome you to both the university and your programme of study. Alternatively, classroom-based induction days take place at our Lancaster and Carlisle campuses and are usually scheduled for the first week of each semester.
