If you have a desire to excel in your nursing career and build advanced knowledge and expertise in selected areas of nursing, our MSc Nursing Studies programme can help you achieve your ambitions.
Middlesex is a leading provider of nursing and midwifery education, with one of the highest student satisfaction ratings in London. The MSc Nursing Studies is aimed at qualified nurses who wish to follow a pathway with an advanced clinical practice focus. The course reflects the current NHS preference for highly skilled staff that can work at an advanced level, meet complex care needs, and work autonomously within a difficult healthcare environment.
We believe in the facilitation of your personal, professional and academic development in order to enhance your confidence, experience and expertise. Supporting you in your studies, our team of expert academic supervisors will help you to find the innovative solutions required in an increasingly strained and complex health sector.
You will work on practical assignments as well as attending lectures, workshops and seminars, where you will take part in class discussions and give presentations. You will work on problem-solving exercises, case studies, role-play exercises and group exercises, and supplement all this with your own independent study, including online learning. You will submit a research proposal and dissertation or work-based project, which you will be helped to develop at one-to-one tutorials.
As well as exams, clinical and practical assessments and your dissertation or project, you will be assessed through a variety of means: reports, critical reflections on practice, service reviews, literature reviews, critical reviews of evidence, reflective journals, study skills workshops, case studies, online quizzes, presentations and class discussions. You will receive regular feedback on your work, both from your tutors and from other students.
We welcome applications from graduates with a good honours degree, or equivalent qualification, in an appropriate subject. We also consider candidates with other relevant qualifications and individuals with a minimum of three years' work experience. Those without formal qualifications need to demonstrate relevant work experience and the ability to study at postgraduate level.
For a comprehensive list of qualifications accepted by Middlesex, see further information under entry requirements.
English language requirements
You must have competence in English language and we normally require Grade C GCSE or an equivalent qualification. The most common English Language requirements for international students is IELTS 6.5 (with minimum 6.0 in all four components).
Middlesex also offers an Intensive Academic English course (Pre-Sessional) that ranges from 5-17 weeks, depending on your level of English. Successful completion of this course would meet English language entry requirements. For more information on applying for the pre-sessional please email email@example.com.
