Thinking about university

This page explains a little about university, the general entry requirements and the things you need to consider. There are links so that you can find out more.

For many jobs in organisations providing NHS healthcare you need to have studied at university. For certain careers, you have to take an approved pre-registration degree or higher diploma. For other careers, any degree subject is acceptable or you can train for a clinical career through an accelerated postgraduate course.
