Entry Requirements

We normally require you to have an Upper Second class honours degree or above. This can be in any subject area. Relevant employment and/or personal experience within a health or social care setting is highly desirable.

If you have a Lower Second classification degree, your application will be considered on a case-by-case basis depending on your experience.

You must also have GCSE English grade C/4 by the start of the course.

We do not accept other Level 2 qualifications as equivalent to GCSE English (eg Functional Skills) and will only consider specific international qualifications as equivalents.
