English language test validity

Some English Language test results are only valid for two years. Your English Language test report must be valid on the start date of the course.

Relevant work experience

Home/UK applicants should usually have current clinical practice experience at the point of application.

Those studying part-time should continue to practice throughout the duration of their studies. For part-time students completing units with practical components, we require written support from their employer to attend and complete any practice-based components.

International applicants should usually have current clinical practice at the point of application and up to the commencement of the course.

Due to the content of some course units, we require students to demonstrate a satisfactory level of experience in a related clinical area to be eligible to undertake the unit.

Professional entry qualification

We require a health/social work professional qualification relevant to the course, or current registration with relevant professional statutory or equivalent regulatory body.
