Students first have an intensive 10-month qualifying year of study. At this time, complementary courses in either the biomedical or social sciences are selected depending on your previous undergraduate studies. You will also be actively involved in nursing courses and will work with the elderly, young families and ill adults in hospitals and community settings. Following successful completion of the qualifying year, students apply to continue their studies in the M.Sc.(A.) Direct-Entry Year 1 and 2.
