International Nursing Studies
This nursing degree is designed for international students to study nursing in the UK. This nursing course will help you further your skills and increase your career prospects. Our state of the art laboratories and inspirational lecturers will provide the support you need to improve your competence and build your confidence.
If you’re already a qualified, experienced nurse, this course will help you become even more effective in caring for patients with complex needs. You’ll learn more about how nurses work and care for patients in the UK. What’s more, studying alongside colleagues from different countries will enhance your understanding of working with people from different cultures.
Here at Anglia Ruskin, you’ll be taught by expert nurses and health professionals who currently work in British healthcare services. They’ll help you evaluate and develop your skills, and build on your theoretical knowledge of nursing. On the practical side, you’ll use our state-of-the-art clinical skills laboratories that will give you an unparalleled opportunity to fine-tune your hands-on nursing skills. Our labs were designed in collaboration with the National Health Service (NHS), and they simulate the experience of working in a UK hospital. You’ll learn through lectures, seminars and ‘action learning’ sets – where you’ll reflect with other students on the actions you’ve taken. Our student nurses really benefit from discussing and sharing their interests, experiences and issues.
Entry requirements for nursing degree courses vary because each university sets its own entry criteria, but you are likely to need at least two (usually three) A-levels, Highers, or equivalent qualifications at Level 3, plus supporting GCSEs including English, maths, and a science (usually biology or human biology).
You will need to have a qualification in nursing from your country of residence that is equivalent to 120 Level 4 and 120 Level 5 UK Higher Education credits. You must also be a registered nurse in your country of residence or have evidence that your application is being processed. All applicants will be required to demonstrate the university standard of English language (IELTS) at Level 6.0 for level 5 entry or Level 6.5 for level 6 entry. Students who do not meet this criterion will be advised to seek support from ALS English language programme or Cambridge Ruskin International College prior to commencement of the course.
