MSc - Master of Science
Children's Nursing Youth Studies
Are you good with children? Able to offer reassurance to them and their parents or carers in times of need? Could you meet the challenges of a changing healthcare environment? Training as a children’s nurse will make you highly employable in one of the most rewarding professions.
You’ll learn how to deliver care to children with complex care needs, in hospital and in the community, helping them to live well, be healthy and overcome acute and life-changing events. You’ll also gain a broader awareness of the health and social care needs of adults, and how this influences the early years and life of children and young people.
Get the opportunity to practice what you’ve learnt on supervised work placements. By the time you graduate, you’ll have developed the skills you need to plan, coordinate and deliver care in a safe, compassionate and effective way. And you’ll be able to register as a qualified children’s nurse with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC).

To be confirmed
You should have a degree equivalent to UK first-class or second-class honours (2:2 or above). Health-related subjects are preferred but not essential. Other subjects will be considered on an individual basis. An interview forms part of the selection process. Pre-registration nursing programmes are typically three years in duration so, in order to join this two-year MSc, you will be required to apply for Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL). This will be in the form of three short pieces of written work (essays) and evidence which will also confirm that you have met a minimum of 700 hours of appropriate health-related occupational or voluntary experience. Further details about RPL, including guidance on the development of your three short academic essays, will be sent to you upon successful completion of an interview.
