Due to the recent pandemic, interest has grown in the field of nursing. According to recent statistics from OUAC, applications for nursing programs have increased by more than 22,000 or 17.5%. That means it will be even more difficult to get into an already competitive program. One solution is to study nursing overseas! Bangor University in Wales is now accepting applications from Canadian students. As an added bonus, while qualifying to work back in Canada, nurses will now be eligible to work in the UK for up to two years, according to a recent agreement from the UK government for international students.

Please see below the details from Bangor University about the Adult Nursing in Bangor. Please note this is a 3 year full-time program.

The one key word that could be used to describe the role of adult field registered nurses is diversity – registered nurses who hold adult field registration (and additional registerable qualifications, for example prescribing or teaching) care for the needs of people across the lifespan, including safeguarding the health of mother and baby. You will be able to experience that diversity during placements in clinical areas where adult nurses practice which might include:

  • Acute sector general and specialist medical and surgical nursing
  • Critical care nursing (intensive and high dependency care, emergency department, theatres and recovery)
  • Community nursing in the home environment and primary care

Adult nursing offers a range of interesting and worthwhile careers in healthcare with opportunities available to develop skills and knowledge in diverse areas, such as: leadership, advanced clinical practice, education or research. Advice on entry requirements and careers can be found here. 

The taught elements of this course can be delivered at both the Bangor and Wrexham Archimedes Centre campuses so students can choose which location they wish to apply for.

Welsh Government, through NHS Wales, is continuing to fund commissioned programmes for nursing, midwifery, radiography and physiotherapy for courses that begin by April 2021. That means fees are paid and living cost contributions may be available. Please look at this website for further information.

Unfortunately as this course is funded by the NHS and students have to have placements in the local NHS Health Board we are unable to accept applications from overseas (Non EU) students with the exception of Canadian students who can apply through Barclays Educational Services.

We at the School of Health sciences, appreciate the current situation with Covid 19 is worrying for all.  In addition to this, many of you are also concerned as to how you will meet your offer conditions following the Government decision to cancel examinations for GCSE and A levels in May and June 2020. 

Please be assured Bangor University will be following the guidelines provided from UK and Welsh Government, UCAS and the awarding bodies to ensure applicants do not lose the opportunity to commence their studies at Bangor University this year.  All offers of places at Bangor University are still in place and we will be providing offer holders with updated information as this becomes available.  Please do check the Bangor University, UCAS and awarding body websites for updates and we will email you with further information as it becomes available.

The taught elements of this course are held at both the Bangor & Wrexham Archimedes Centre campuses. Students can choose which location they wish to apply for.
