Studied before or got relevant experience?
A qualification, HE credits or relevant experience may count towards your course at Brighton, and could mean that you do not have to take some elements of the course or can start in year 2.
Candidates are advised that places for entry into year 2 of this course for September 2021 are very limited. We normally welcome these applications but high demand for all nursing courses for both 2020 and 2021 entry will restrict availability.
We are not able to accept applications for deferred entry onto this course. If you wish to apply for a later year of entry, we recommend waiting until the admissions cycle for that year opens – this is usually in October of each year.
Students successful at the application stage will be invited to attend an interview.
Men are under-represented in many nursing and allied health professions in the UK. We are committed to helping address the balance and particularly welcome applications from male applicants.
