Entry Requirements

You must hold a degree in any subject and a Postgraduate Diploma in Nursing from a pre-registration course along with a registered (NMC) nurse status.

Some applicants may be invited to attend an informal interview with the course leader to ensure that the programme is suitable for themselves.
