For changes to 2017 UCAS tariff entry requirements please see our important information. UCLan requires all undergraduate applicants to have a minimum attainment of five GCSEs at grade C and above, or equivalent, (including Maths and English). In 2017 and beyond we will view the new Grade 4 as being equivalent to a C grade and will therefore require students to achieve GCSE Grade 4 or above. However, if the subject is relevant to our degree programme and requires a higher GCSE grade (e.g. GCSE B grade), and/or includes a Professional body that governs the entry requirements, Grade 5 or above may be required.
A flexible degree that enables qualified operating department practitioners (ODPs) and qualified theatre nurses to develop their specialist knowledge and promote effective care delivery. The course utilises a variety of assessment techniques and strategies, including written assignments, examinations, poster presentations and case studies.
Opportunities for further study can be in MSc Advanced Practice and MSc Nursing.
