Nursing Courses

As one of the largest nursing schools in the UK, we offer innovative courses informed by powerful research and delivered by high-quality teachers in an inspiring environment.

The Nursing and Midwifery Council plan to introduce new national educational standards for nursing in 2018. As such, we intend to commence a new curriculum in September 2019, based on these standards. This is subject to the ratification of the Nursing and Midwifery Council. This page will be updated as the new curriculum is confirmed
