Entry Requirements

The minimum entry requirement for this programme will normally be an honours degree or its equivalent. In addition, because of the work based nature of the programme, all students must be working in clinical practice or sponsored by a Health Board and have access to a practice teacher/ practice facilitator.

You must be a registered nurse or midwife with the Nursing and Midwifery Council, or the equivalent for international students. This is the only route available to International students due to the non-attendance requirement and NMC registration requirements.
