Course content


A degree designed for those on the health care profession career path seeking to enhance their nursing skills. For many, a dynamic and varied skill set is essential to keeping up with the ever-changing needs and challenges of modern clinical practice. This degree helps you develop a multidisciplinary understanding of all areas of practice to ensure you provide first rate care to your patients.


Students study in the areas of enhanced clinical assessment, research methodologies and pathophysiology, in addition to a choice compulsory module (with opportunity to pursue work-based learning or qualitative research). You will meet regularly with peers from other schools within the School of Health Sciences: an inter-professional attitude that encourages good communication and a greater understanding of different roles within the medical profession.


As a postgraduate Nurse student at UEA, you will benefit from research-led and problem-based teaching to ensure as a graduate you’re fit for practice in the modern health and social care sectors. With great pride in its inter-professional academic environment, the School not only encourages students to reach their full potential, but also inspires lifelong learning and continued professional development opportunities.


The School of Health Sciences takes a leading role in the renowned scientific research community of Norwich, a hub of exciting scientific research in the UK. As a student, you will enjoy great support for life-long learning and career development. In addition to studying this degree, a host of continual professional development (CPD) courses are available for those already qualified or working in health provision.
