Course content

Our PGDIP in Adult Nursing is an accelerated 2-year programme, which is supported by the NHS and designed in partnership with practice colleagues and service users to provide a high quality, flexible, student-centred and patient-focused educational experience. This will develop practitioners that are highly employable and recognised for the additional academic credibility they achieve.

We have one intake in September 2018, which build on the core values of the NHS constitution and fully prepares students for the challenges of modern nursing practice. Upon successful completion of the programme, students will gain both an academic award (PGdip) and eligibility to register with the Nursing & Midwifery Council as an adult nurse. Support is available from a range of sources to guide students’ academic and practice development throughout the programme.

This course is 50% theory and 50% clinical practice with placements in both the hospital and community settings. You will also have the opportunity to gain the added value of an additional award in acute illness management (AIMS©) at the end of the programme.

The Department of Health consultation for students starting in September 2017 has significantly changed the way healthcare courses will be funded. Health Education England have allocated a small number of capped funded places for new starters in 2017 for tuition fees and bursary. However, Manchester Metropolitan University has not been allocated any funding for PG Diplomas starting in September 2017, students will be required to pay their own tuition fees for this course.
