Postgraduate Diploma in Nursing - Mental Health (pre-registration)

Develop the skills to work as a partner in the care of people across society in the formidable and rewarding field of mental health nursing. On this course you will hone your ability to make complex decisions, learn how to evaluate practice, co-ordinate care and advocate for patients' needs. By studying at the University of Southampton, a founder member of the Russell Group, you will also benefit from our global and national pedigree in nursing - 10th in the world and 3rd among UK universities. This two year course involves a rigorous combination of theoretical work in the classroom and practical experience in clinical and community settings. Successful completion gives you the credentials to be eligible to register with the Nursing and Midwifery Council as a qualified nurse. The diploma represents two-thirds of a masters degree and the outstanding third may be taken in the future through a top-up course. Please note: This course is funded by the NHS for UK and EU students, meaning you will have no tuition fees to pay. In addition, if you are a UK resident you will receive annual financial support of £1,000 and you can apply for a means tested bursary.
