We don’t currently display entry requirements for United States. Please contact the Student Admin team on email@example.com or 0191 515 3154.
Enhanced Project Qualification in a relevant subject will also be considered.
If you already have a degree (minimum 2.2 at full honours) or your qualification is not listed above, you will be classed as a mature student.
Your completed application form will be reviewed by our Admissions Team to ensure that you have the required entry qualifications. If you meet these requirements, then your application will be individually assessed and if successful you will be shortlisted for interview.
The selection process will include a group activity and four mini-interviews which will assess you on your values, problem solving and communication skills.
Fitness to practise
Medical assessments of your mental and physical health and disclosure of criminal convictions apply to all health courses and are based on current NMC requirements. Midwives are registered health care professionals and the ability to practise safely, effectively and professionally is essential, so all applicants are required to follow our fitness to practise procedures. This means you are required to complete the following:
- A health declaration form. Here you must demonstrate that you are of good health, good character and can satisfactorily pass occupational health screening. In addition, you will be required to attend an Occupational Health Assessment with an NHS Trust. The University will, taking into account current NMC regulations, make any reasonable adjustments if required.
- A self-declaration form about your conduct.
- Obtain an Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check. The cost of the DBS check is covered by the University.
Instructions on how you complete these checks will be sent to you once you hold a conditional firm offer with us. These forms are then reviewed alongside your application, and you must meet both the academic and fitness to practise requirements before you will be given an unconditional offer. If you are successful, you will also need to complete an annual declaration form to confirm you are fit and there are no changes to your DBS.
Students studying a health or social care course, that has a placement within the NHS or any other Care Quality Commission establishment, are strongly encouraged to be vaccinated against Covid-19. Find out more in our Help and Advice article.
