This postgraduate nursing programme is designed for graduates from other disciplines who wish to gain professional registration in Adult, Children's or Mental Health Nursing. The programme runs over two years.
The programme focuses on quality care, cutting edge clinical skills and is designed to be both research intensive and research informed. You will learn the pivotal roles of nurse and client, while developing your nursing skills and building your knowledge of professional and ethical practice. This innovative programme ensures our students meet the registration requirements of the Nursing and Midwifery Council.
Subjects such as nursing bioscience, professional practice, research, evidence-based practice, policy and clinical leadership, as well as adult, children's or mental health nursing are studied. The programme is divided between theoretical modules and clinical practice, with blocks of time spent in clinical placement.
You will have the opportunity to gain experience in a variety of healthcare settings. Opportunities for national and international electives are also offered.
The primary aim of the programme is to support students as they progress towards registered practitioner level and beyond, and to provide a framework within which they can acquire and demonstrate both generic transferable competencies and those specific to their area of practice.

All students on nursing programmes are required to undertake an enhanced DBS check and all must give consent to this. Completed DBS checks must be received prior to the student undertaking any clinical placement. All students attend Occupational Health (OH) on entry the programme. All applicants are required to make an APEL claim. Pre-registration nursing programmes should normally be no less than three years. However, the use of APEL permits us to offer a programme of two years duration to those applicants who can show evidence of prior learning relevant to the programme.
Registered Nurse positions in a range of leading NHS Trusts and with other health care providers.
The MSc Physiotherapy (pre-registration) is a full time programme that is normally completed over two years and gives you an accelerated route into the profession.
Following successful completion you will be eligible to apply for registration with the Health and Care Professions Council; registration is required if you wish to practice as a Physiotherapist in the UK. During the course you will undertake practice placements to give you the hands-on experience you need to begin your career. You will also study the sciences and be taught practical techniques that underpin physiotherapy.
The programme is not designed for qualified physiotherapists, however there are postgraduate courses that we offer for those who wish to further their qualifications.
This pre-registration course provides a masters degree in the science that underpins physiotherapy as well as eligibility to apply to register as a physiotherapist. The course is research-led, bringing together internationally recognised experts in research, education and clinical practice and provides an exceptional student experience.
At the core of this physiotherapy masters degree course is the exercise of clinical judgement and informed interpretation.
You will be mentored to become a better clinician, educator, evaluator and manager throughout your time with us.
You will be based at our multidisciplinary faculty, where there is a strong emphasis on collaborative learning.
There you will have the opportunity to learn from a wide range of clinical experts, as well as those who specialise in physiotherapy.
You will also be encouraged to learn both independently and also from your colleagues in order to develop your knowledge and skills.
In addition, your learning will be supported by close contact with our Rehabilitation and Health Technologies research group; giving you access to the latest scientific discoveries.
The postgraduate diploma course in Adult Nursing is open to applicants with a first-degree or a higher degree; the programme makes use of Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) provision for prior learning to allow students to complete the academic award and achieve professional registration as a nurse via a two-year course. Successful applicants will undertake some of their studies alongside undergraduate students completing the BSc (Hons) in Adult Nursing, but will also complete dedicated study at Master's level to achieve a postgraduate qualification.
The NMC’s Standards for Pre-registration Nursing Education (2010) require programmes leading to registration to be delivered over 4600 hours, with 50% of this theory and 50% practice; NMC do however permit prior learning to be recognised where this can be mapped against the programme outcomes and requirements. Students applying for this programme will therefore need to demonstrate that they have the relevant experience and learning prior to entering the course.
Throughout the course you will develop your knowledge and understanding of the art and science of adult nursing. Communication and team working are key in health and social care and you will develop a range of interpersonal skills that enable you to work effectively with a wide diversity of clients and within complex settings.
The health economy is rapidly changing and future nurses are likely to be located in a broader range of workplaces. Your placement opportunities will therefore be in a diverse range of settings which include the growing independent sector as well as care within the community, preparing you to function effectively and meet the health care needs of an increasing ageing population.
Please note that this course is not recruiting for September 2017. We will be recruiting a funded intake to this course in February 2018. You can apply for February 2018 using the September 2017 start date in UCAS. Funding arrangements for students starting in September 2018 are unconfirmed by the Government.
