Nursing and Midwifery
World-Renowned Hospital Placements
You will be taught and supported by leading academics, nurses and midwives. Our courses provide you with the knowledge and experience needed to embark on a professional healthcare career. We teach health practitioners to focus on the patient, and give you the confidence to speak up when they cannot. You'll gain valuable experience in a wide range of clinical settings, with placements available at world-renowned hospitals in London and South East. Your time will be split between 50% in academic study and 50% in clinical practice. You will be able to practice your theory in a safe simulated environment, then take this with you on placement. We design our courses in partnership with healthcare providers and commissioners, ensuring that our students begin their career with a wealth of knowledge and practice behind them.

When you graduate, you’ll be able to register as a nurse with the Nursing & Midwifery Council (NMC).
