Ranking and student feedback
The MSc Primary and Community Care will provide Registered Healthcare Professionals, who are currently working in the primary care and /or community care setting, with a flexible, learner-centred and practice focused programme of study which aims to meet their personal, professional and practice development needs. It reflects the growing field of advanced clinical practice and aligns to the guidelines for General Practice Nursing produced by the Royal College of General Practitioners, the Royal College of Nursing’s Advanced Practice Guidelines, Health Education England’s pillars of Advanced Practice and the Queen’s Nursing Institute’s Voluntary Standards for Education and Practice.
You will have an honours degree, normally at a 2:2 (or equivalent level qualification) or will be working at an equivalent level in your clinical practice. You will also need to hold a professional registration with an appropriate professional regulatory body. You will also be required to evidence that you are employed in a relevant role for a minimum of 300 hour whilst studying. BGU welcomes applications with non-standard qualifications so if you have significant experience in lieu of the above, we would be happy to consider this. Applications for Accreditation of Prior Learning (APL) will be considered with up to 90 credits being awarded for prior learning from programmes accredited at other Higher Education Institutions, for example the Non-medical Prescribing Programme. This will need to be applied for in line with BGU APL policy. Funding implications will need to be assessed if APL is successful.
About this university
International students come to Lincoln from around the world to study at the university and there are plenty of resources to help them adjust. These start with country specific information for the application process as well as for the immigration and visa paperwork required for the move. There is also plenty of student support and advice for all the different aspects of life that those from outside the UK need to adjust to. This includes areas such as getting part time work, a bank account or a general practise registration for healthcare services. There are also plenty of social events, clubs and other activities to help integrate with their community as well as English language support for those who donâ€™t speak or need to improve their English. The student union is at the heart of life outside the classroom at the university and is referred to as the BGSU. The union provides a range of support and advice services for its members as well as representing them within the university and nationally. It is also responsible for the organisation of the clubs and societies as well as organising various social events. The union has a particularly well noted RAG present with money raised for different charities over the last thirty-five years. The various sports teams and solo activities all take part in the British Universities and Colleges Sport leagues against other institutions from around the country. There are also fitness facilities such as sports hall, gym and fields to be used with the various sports. Sports range from traditional ones such as football and rugby to activities such as cheerleading, netball and basketball. In the societies, there are a vast range of subjects covered. These range from interests such as anime and gaming or quidditch to academic areas like history or French as well as those involving performing arts such as drama. Finally, learn something new with a language or cultural group as well as useful skills such as sign language and first aid, skills that may come in useful later in life.
