Postgraduate Nursing

• Pre-registration Nursing Masters
• Second Field of Nursing Postgraduate Diplomas

Our two-year MSc Nursing programmes provide a route for graduates to gain eligibility to register with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) as a professionally-qualified nurse.

Our programmes combine extensive practice opportunities with collaborative learning informed by service users, carers and their families. There is a range of MSc pathways available, enabling you to train in adult nursing, children’s nursing, learning disability nursing or mental health nursing. We’ll equip you with the field-specific competencies required to achieve national outcomes.

Alternatively, if you’re a qualified nurse holding current registration with the NMC, you can train with us in a second field of nursing. Our PGDip Nursing courses, one-year full-time, enable you to undertake an additional professional role in adult nursing, children’s nursing, learning disability nursing or mental health nursing, and achieve dual registration.

I learnt a lot from tutors sharing their experiences and encouraging us to share ours. Discussing real experiences was a really important part of my learning journey. A stand-out module was the ‘Change in Practice’ module, where you have to choose a service area where you would like to improve.
