Funding update: Non-repayable grants of at least £5,000
The Government has announced that from September 2020 students studying undergraduate and postgraduate pre-registration nursing, midwifery and many allied health courses, including radiography and speech and language therapy, will receive a non-repayable and non-means tested (universal) grant of £5,000 a year. This is in addition to existing mainstream student support accessed through the Student Loans Company.
The Government has also announced additional funding for specific courses or to help students with childcare costs. We will update our website once more details have been announced by the Government. Non-repayable grants of at least £5,000 - read the news article
Undergraduate courses at City are focused on preparing students for the challenging and rewarding role of a nurse. Our courses are practically focused, with the development of your clinical skills a key component in the curriculum. As an undergraduate student you will spend approximately 60% of your time on placements in some of London’s leading hospitals and trusts, including Great Ormond Street Hospital, Barts Health and the East London Foundation Trust.
To prepare you for your placements, as well as traditional classroom teaching, you will be taught through simulated practice in our state-of-the-art Clinical Skills Centre. Simulated practice is designed to teach you how to treat patients and use clinical equipment within a safe environment. City’s Clinical Skill’s Centre has been designed to mirror a real-world healthcare environment, allowing you to familiarise yourself with equipment and practices before placements and develop your skills and confidence throughout your degree. Our hands-on approach is key to producing better equipped, highly competent and more able clinicians.
City’s undergraduate nursing courses are accredited by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC); successful graduates are eligible to apply for registration with the NMC when they complete their course, allowing them to practise in the UK, Ireland and some overseas countries.
By joining a nursing course at City, University of London you will become a CapitalNurse, a link with all nursing students across London; giving you support to develop your nursing career in the capital. Through this relationship with CapitalNurse, our final year nursing students are currently offered a special streamlined employment scheme by all NHS Trusts in North Central London. This provides a supportive and straightforward way of moving into their first nursing roles after completing the degree.
