Continuing Professional Education Modules (CPE)

The modules are offered to support the adult and flexible learning needs of nurses and midwives and can be undertaken without registering for a full postgraduate nursing programme. Students can take up to two modules of study without enrolling on a full programme. Enrolment occurs at the beginning of  the Autumn and Spring semester.

Modules successfully completed by students have designated ECT credits and if students subsequently register for a postgraduate programme of which these modules are part of, they may apply to the University for exemptions for the completed modules and carry grades forward. The modules listed below are offered on Tuesdays during Autumn and Spring semesters. Some modules will only be offered when sufficient numbers of students are registered for those modules, per semester. You will need to contact the office in advance of each academic semester to inform that you are registered for a CPE module, and to receive details on schedules, times and location of when modules are taught.

PROFESSIONAL DOCTORATE CPE Modules will be offered on Wednesdays**  NM8001 / NM8002 / NM8012
