Course overview 

This Nursing course allows you to 'top-up' a registered nurse qualification to a full honours degree in one year of study. This course is designed to top-up a registered nurse qualification (e.g. RGN, RMN, RN, RNMH, RSCN). On successful completion, you will have an honours degree that underlines your advanced clinical expertise and professionalism. During your time at the University, you’ll be taught by an enthusiastic team of skilled professionals. All members of the team have at least one specialist area of both clinical and teaching expertise. They are also actively involved in healthcare research and consultancy work. All learning is underpinned by evidence-based practice that promotes the development of high-quality healthcare provision. There is strong emphasis on relating nursing theory to clinical practice.


Degree qualifications are becoming increasingly vital for moving up to senior positions, and our graduates have a strong record of career progression. The course is carefully structured to enhance skills that allow you to meet a wider range of challenges. We work hard to ensure you have all the support that you need to build your confidence and professionalism. If you are an international student, please be aware that successful completion of this Nursing (Top-Up) course will not make you eligible to work as a nurse in the UK. In order for you to work as a nurse in the UK, you must be registered with the Nursing Midwifery Council (NMC). To register with the NMC, you must complete an Overseas Nurses Programme, which takes between 3-6 months.

Modular structure

The content of this course builds on skills and experience that you will have already gained through a registered nurse qualification.

  • Research Methods (20 Credits)
  • Theory and Practice in Healthcare (20 Credits)
  • Evidence-Based Practice (20 Credits)
  • Management of Care (20 Credits)
  • Preparation for Mentorship (20 Credits)
  • Law and Ethics in Healthcare (20 Credits)
  • Dissertation (40 Credits)

Teaching and Assessment 

We use a wide variety of teaching and learning methods which include lectures, seminars, study visits and group work. These are supported by a range of guest speakers from diverse academic and industry backgrounds. Compared to an undergraduate course, you will find that this Masters course requires a higher level of independent working. Assessment methods include essays, exams, presentations, portfolios of evidence and a dissertation.


Fees and funding

To apply for this course, you need to be a registered nurse with a recognised regulatory nursing organisation in the country of origin or hold an HE Diploma Level Nursing qualification. In addition to academic qualifications, you must also have a minimum level of English language skills. If English is not your first language, please see our English language requirements.

The annual tuition fee for this course is £9,250 for students from the UK / EU. Full-time UK and EU students studying on undergraduate courses in 2016 / 2017 may be eligible for a number of scholarships:

  • The University of Sunderland Scholarship
  • The Get There Scholarship
  • The Care Leavers’ Scholarship

The annual tuition fee for this course is £10,750. However, all international students applying are eligible for a £1,500 scholarship. This means that the total tuition fee you will pay is £9,250 each year.
