Applicants are expected to hold a recognised healthcare related qualification with current professional registration (where appropriate to the qualification) and normally a minimum of 6 months post-qualifying experience in order to consolidate training. In addition:

  • Applicants should hold a qualification which provides 120 credits at level 4, or equivalent, for entry to the diploma programme or a Dip. H. E., (or equivalent), obtained within the last five years, for entry to the degree programme;
  • Applicants for the graduate certificate are normally expected to hold an honours or ordinary degree, or equivalent

Equivalences of overseas qualifications are assessed using a specialist resource (NARIC) to which SGUL subscribes.
