Postgraduate Diplomas

Our graduate-entry courses allow graduates from other disciplines to gain a pre-registration health qualification in approximately two years as opposed to the usual three or four - providing a fast-track route into health professions.

These courses are also designed for health professionals who wish to gain a second registration in midwifery, health visiting, school and district nursing.

Top-up-courses and post-registration

Our range of post-registration courses for health and social care professionals allow practitioners to "top-up" their existing qualification to degree level or gain a second specialisation. For overseas nurses, courses provide a route to qualification for practice in the UK.
