Imperial College works closely with employers and industry, including NHS Trust staff and employees from the Department of Health to design Master’s courses which provide graduates with technical knowledge, expertise and transferable skills. All Master’s courses are designed with employer needs in mind with some Master’s courses accredited by Professional, Statutory and Regulatory Bodies. During this Master’s course, we encourage students to complete a piece of research in their own NHS Trust, however for those not employed in the NHS or where a project is not feasible we offer an opportunity to carry out research projects in Imperial College London or with an industry partner.
Applications will be welcomed from those holding a good bachelors degree (normally an upper second class degree or above) in Nursing, another health profession, or an equivalent degree from a UK/EU university.
Students with a Nursing diploma with substantial work experience may also be considered. Any such applicants will be subject to a special qualifying examination (administered by the Division) including an interview to assess academic potential for completing the course.
The Special Qualifying Exam will be held at Hammersmith Campus. Please contact us for further information.
