What you'll study

This course is for nurses who qualified outside the UK and want to study on our award-winning Health Campus.

 

First year

All modules are subject to availability and this list may change at any time.

The course consists of 120 credits per year. Most modules are 20 credits, meaning you’ll study six modules each year. Some longer modules, such as a dissertation, are worth more (e.g. 40 credits). In these cases, you’ll study fewer modules - but the number of credits will always add up to 120.

Core modules

Core and compulsory modules are fundamental to achieving the learning outcomes for your course and must be studied.

  • Study Skills for Lifelong Learning in Health and Social Care

    Develop the skills required for effective research and study at higher education level. The aim of this module is to equip you with up-to-date study skills and to develop your analytical and critical thinking skills.

Optional modules

Optional modules let you tailor the course to your interests. Please note, the availability of optional modules can vary each trimester. And some modules may require prior study (taking an earlier module, for example).

  • Work Based Learning

  • Caring for People with Long Term Health Conditions

    Improving care and quality of life for people living with long term conditions is central to NHS policy. Health and social care practitioners need to be able to support the drive to provide more person-centred care outside of the hospital setting. Develop the knowledge and skills to recognise and respond to the needs of individuals living with long term conditions.

  • Supervising and Mentoring Practice

  • Ensuring Quality in Healthcare

    Explore perspectives underpinning the nature and purpose of shared governance and reflect upon the service user and patient experience. You'll critically explore the changing health care agenda and its development of shared governance within a developing provider service.
