Entry requirements

For entry to the MSc Nursing programme, all applicants must hold a professional nursing qualification, which is registerable in their country of training.

Applicants should normally hold a relevant honours degree or the international equivalent (as recognised by NARIC or the University’s international recruitment office). For nurses who have completed pre-registration studies to diploma level, this will be considered if evidence of CPD study at Level 6 or level 7 can also be provided.

As this nursing programme does not have any mandatory clinical practice requirements, overseas applicants do not need to seek professional registration with the UK Nursing and Midwifery Council.

 

International qualifications

Applications from EU and international students already resident in the UK are welcome.  International qualifications will be evaluated in line with the National Recognition Information Centre (NARIC) guidelines.

English language qualifications

All applicants must have reached a minimum required standard of English language and are required to provide evidence of this. Qualifications accepted by the University can be found on our International webpages. Please see www.liv.ac.uk/international for English Language requirements specific to your country.

If you meet the academic requirements of the course but do not have the required level of English Language, it is possible for you to come and study at the University on one of our Pre-sessional EAP programmes.  Please see the English Language Centre website for further information about these programmes; www.liv.ac.uk/english-language-centre/pre-sessional-eap.

If you require additional English Language training during your study, the University is able to provide tuition and arrange IELTS tests through its English Language Centre, details of which are available at www.liverpool.ac.uk/english-language-centre.
