In 2014, 100% of the BSc (Hons) Acute, Critical and Emergency Care students achieved a first or 2:1 degree classification.  83.33% of the BA  (Hons) Leading Innovation for Clinical Practitioners students achieved a first or 2:1 degree classification.

Overall, 68.3% of our post registration students achieved Good Honours results! 


In consultation with external stakeholders the school has taken a strategic decision to close the BSc Nursing Practice pathway to new admissions from September 2017.  This means there will be no admissions to this programme after this 2016/17 academic year. The programme will continue to run to allow existing students enrolled on the pathway the opportunity to complete their studies.  Therefore current modules will continue to be available for existing students and on a credit only basis subject to viable numbers.

The post registration level 6 provision at HSC will continue to offer the BSc Acute, Critical and Emergency Care and the BA Leading Innovation for Clinical Practitioners post registration part time degree programmes, which are open to HCPC and NMC registrants.

We will continue to explore new and innovative ideas to enhance and develop our post-registration provision.

You can apply for a single module or for a module as part of a degree pathway.

There are three post-registration HSC degree pathways.  Full outlines of these pathways can be found in the UEA Degree Programmes 2016/7 document (PDF). The pathway options are as follows: 

  • BSc (Hons) Nursing Practice

  • BSc (Hons) Acute, Critical & Emergency Practice (ACE)

  • BA (Hons) Leading Innovation for Clinical Practitioners (LICP)

From September 2015, You will need to complete 120 Level 6 credits at UEA in order to receive a degree from UEA. This is a change to previous years of entry and colleagues who are already on these or previously offered pathways may be subject to different Regulations.

There is no change with regard to Level 4 or 5 Accreditation of Prior Learning. You can apply to use your diploma and professional registration, plus evidence of recent up to date study if your diploma was completed more than 5 years ago, to be counted as the equivalent of 120 Level 4 credits and 120 Level 5 credits.

It is important that you consider the possibility of joining a pathway at the same time as applying for the module as the registration on the pathway cannot be back dated to the start of the module. You should note that joining a pathway does not incur any additional cost to your employer, but you should discuss the ongoing support for your studies that will be required from your employer to complete 120 credits and gain a degree within the next 5 years. 

If you do decide to apply for a degree pathway and are then unsuccessful in completing the module, any further study with us will be on a credit-only basis.  You may also choose to leave the pathway at any point and continue to study on a credit-only basis.
