Nursing Studies leading to professional registration as an Adult Nurse
This course is not presently open to international applicants. We are unable to accept international applications, as clinical placement capacity is confined by local staffing requirements.
You'll need a minimum 2:2 undergraduate honours degree in a relevant subject (eg social sciences, human sciences, biomedical sciences, public services). You'll also need GCSE Mathematics, English and Science.
You must meet the entry requirements for the programme prior to the course start date in November each year.
All students will require a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check and health screening.
You’ll be required to demonstrate an awareness of, and commitment to, the core values of the NHS which aspires to provide the highest standards of excellence, professionalism and public accountability, and gives priority to the interests of patients. We base our selection decisions on these values and how well you are able to express them on your application and performance on our selection day.
While we value your caring experience it is still important that you meet the academic entry requirements of the programme. If you are currently studying towards meeting the entry requirements then you are welcome to apply. If you meet first degree requirements but aren’t sure if your GCSE/equivalent qualifications are sufficient then please contact us to discuss this. To apply for the programme you must be able to demonstrate that you have a good standard of secondary education.
Months of entry
Our approach to teaching is innovative. Instead of sitting in a lecture theatre, you’ll work on solutions to specific problems. This helps you develop the skills and the confidence you need. You’ll study alongside other health care professionals in a health care setting.
You’ll learn how to critically evaluate current research, policies and practice. By linking theory to practice, you’ll develop a range of clinical skills and knowledge appropriate for professional registration as an adult nurse.
You’ll spend half your time gaining practical experience in a wide variety of community and clinical settings.
You'll apply by UCAS.
