Learning beyond registration

Qualified nurses, midwives and other health professionals are increasingly looking for learning and development opportunities to help them meet new challenges and pursue rewarding careers.

We offer Learning Beyond Registration (LBR) courses at degree level, including:

  • Undergraduate degrees
  • Single courses in specific areas for professional updating (scroll down to 'Modules')
  • Mentorship learning endorsed by the NMC. The first stage of the programme is a free short course Facilitating Learning in Practice. The next stage, open to registered, practising nurses, is a portfolio assessment developed explicitly to enable nurses to demonstrate evidence required to meet eligibility to enter locally-held registers for mentors. There is a fee for the portfolio assessment. Sign up at Mentorship portfolio assessment

Undergraduate degree

We offer one degree suitable for healthcare practitioners: the BA/BSc (Hons) Health and Social Care.

The BA/BSc (Hons) Health and Social Care is a broader award for a wide range of professionals working in healthcare, social work or social care in the statutory, voluntary or private sectors. It is closely attuned to current priorities and the NHS modernisation agenda, and will help you to develop as an independent and reflective learner in the context of health and social care provision, policy and practice.

Single courses

Many of our modules can be studied singly to update skills and knowledge in a specific area. They range from short, online professional skills courses in areas such as mentorship, clinical leadership, change management and strategy, to undergraduate and postgraduate modules covering subjects as diverse as end-of-life care, working with children and families, life sciences, public health and enhancing the patient experience.
