Job roles

Our undergraduate adult, child and mental health nursing courses are accredited by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC), which means that on successful completion of your studies, you’ll have the academic requirements needed to register to work as nurse in your chosen field.


Our alumni can be found working for NHS trusts across the UK, with recent graduates working for:

  • Guy's and St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust
  • Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust
  • Surrey and Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust.


With your NMC registration, you’ll be eligible to work throughout the UK. You can also use your qualification to practise outside of the UK, within the EU or further afield.


Nursing is the largest healthcare profession in the UK and is home to a diverse range of roles in hospitals, GP surgeries, people’s homes and the wider community. There are also specialist areas that nurses occupy in care homes, schools, hospices, mental health agencies, the military and in industry. You may also want to explore alternative paths, including education, management, mentoring and research.

Visit the NHS careers website for further information.
