Course overview

Benefits of this course

You will study a range of theoretical and practical modules covering key principles and practices in adult nursing, including:

  • acute care, diagnostics and treatment
  • long term care, recovery and rehabilitation
  • leading and managing in healthcare practice.

You will learn alongside students from other nursing pathways and professional disciplines such as Speech and Language Therapy, encouraging a multi-disciplinary approach that reflects professional clinical practice.

Who is this course for?

If you are a graduate who wants to pursue a rewarding career in nursing, this MSc will equip you with the essential skills and knowledge you need, even if your first degree is in an unrelated subject.

Teaching and assessment

You will learn through a dynamic mix of direct, interactive and online methods, including:

  • seminars
  • laboratory practicals
  • self-directed study
  • practice experience
  • simulated practice
  • online activities.


Most placements are within our 'community of practice', a partnership of healthcare providers within Central, East and North East London, which will enable you to gain a detailed understanding of the local community and how services are structured.

Clinical placements are an essential part of this programme.


On successful completion of the course, you will be eligible to register with the NMC, which provides an internationally recognised professional qualification, enabling you to practice as an adult and mental health nurse in the UK and overseas (although additional registration maybe required in some countries).

Following registration, a range of opportunities and career pathways will be open to you, such as:

  • clinical management
  • advanced nurse practitioner
  • education
  • research
  • clinical specialisms
  • community nursing.
