Course content

Taking an advanced nursing course is a real investment in your career. We have excellent links with local NHS trusts and many of our graduates find they achieve promotion during or soon after their course.

Our course has been carefully designed to advance nursing practice and improve patient care. In clinical practice, applicants for senior and advanced nursing posts are increasingly expected to be working toward masters-level qualifications.

You'll join students from diverse clinical backgrounds, including acute and community care settings. Many come from the UK, but also further afield: all share a common commitment to advancing the nursing profession. You'll learn from each other and experienced teachers, develop new friendships, and share practice.

One of our graduates was named post-registration 'Student of the Year' at the 2020 Student Nursing Times Awards, recognising their achievements in both academic work and service development.
