Already a qualified nurse or midwife? Join our degree course in Year 3 to develop your understanding of child health, and how you can deliver high standards of care to infants, children, young people and their families.
Our course will develop your understanding of child health, so that you can work effectively in services for children and young people.
Already a nurse or midwife working with infants, children or young people, you’ll develop your expertise through a choice of optional modules, which include antenatal and newborn screening, and intensive care nursing. As well as this, you'll be able to sharpen your research skills by completing our Research Methodology module.
Our modules are designed to enhance your knowledge and clinical skills in your specific area of practice. Take up to three years to complete our part-time course and by the end of it, you’ll be able to influence practice for the benefit of children and families in your care.

The course fee assumes that you’re studying at half the rate of a full time student (50% intensity). Course fees will be different if you study over a longer period. All fees are for guidance purposes only.
You can pay your fees in the following ways.
Most English undergraduates take out a tuition fee loan with Student Finance England. The fees are then paid directly to us. The amount you repay each month is linked to your salary and repayments start in April after you graduate.
If you choose not to take out a loan you can pay your fees directly to us. There are two ways to do this: either pay in full, or through a three- or six-month instalment plan starting at registration.
Most new undergraduate students can apply for government funding to support their studies and university life. This includes Tuition Fee Loans and Maintenance Loans. There are additional grants available for specific groups of students, such as those with disabilities or dependants.
We also offer a fantastic range of ARU scholarships, which provide extra financial support while you’re at university. Find out more about eligibility and how to apply.
From September 2018, EU students starting an undergraduate degree with us can access an £800 bursary.
Meanwhile, our £400 Books Plus scheme helps with the costs of study. There's no need to apply for this: if you're eligible you can simply collect a Books Plus card when you start your course.
