When applying, you must ensure that you apply for one programme that you wish to progress on to. Multiple applications will be rejected and result in disappointment. We will also not consider applications from applicants who have multiple UCAS applications for a variety of programmes, as this does not demonstrate a clear commitment.
As a graduate of the School of Health Sciences you’ll be eligible to apply for registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) or the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). You can look forward to a career in the National Health Service, Social Services or the private sector. You will have gained a qualification that meets the Government’s criteria for ‘fitness for purpose’ and ‘fitness for practice’ as well as developing transferable skills such as communication, information technology, problem solving and teamwork.
