Undergraduate CPD units in nursing, midwifery and social work

We offer a wide range of Level 6 units for health professionals looking to improve their skills and further their careers through CPD.

Our CPD units are available to both those working in nursing, midwifery and social work and other health practitioners.

You can study individual units as standalone short courses, or build up the credits earned through individual units to contribute towards an undergraduate award.

BSc awards

Our Nursing Practice and Midwifery Practice BSc (Hons) courses are for qualified nurses and midwives who wish to undertake CPD at undergraduate (Level 6) level.

You can either take individual units attached to these courses as standalone CPD courses, or combine several units to build up 120 credits over a maximum of five years on a part-time basis and achieve the full BSc award.

Please note that these BSc courses are not suitable for undergraduate students wishing to train as a nurse in the first instance - please see the following BNurs courses instead:
