The Nursing & Health Care School is committed to evidence based practice and research that enhances patient care and service delivery and which underpins our teaching. Our research activity is multi-professional, patient-centred and collaborative and sits mainly within the themes of  Improving Health, Wellbeing and Care and Education. There is an active post-graduate research community and offers MSc (Research) and PhD programmes on a full or part time basis.

At undergraduate level we offer an Honours Degree (4 years) leading to Registration in Nursing. Our students have rated the School as the Best in the UK and our highly valued graduates have excellent employment prospects. We have access to excellent facilities and a wide range of world renowned experts in their subjects. A strong science component, integrated with caring and leadership skills and strongly underpinned by research is a unique feature of our programme. We have excellent relationships with clinical staff across NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde where students have clinical placements.

The School offers a flexible programme of multi-professional postgraduate courses that may be taken individually or towards a postgraduate certificate, diploma or masters degree. The MSc Advanced Practice in Health Care programme is designed to develop the knowledge and skills required to lead advances in patient care and service delivery. Awards in various specialist fields are available, including the unique Postgraduate Certificate in Healthcare Chaplaincy. Multi-professional Graduate Diploma/Certificates are offered in Lymphoedema and Burns and Plastic Surgery Care and attract participants from across the UK.

Enrolment on to BN courses for new students

Registration for new students:

All students must register online using MyCampus, the University of Glasgow student information system. New students must register by the end of August, as enrolment will take place at the beginning of September.  You will receive information before you are due to start University on how to access your student record online, including your Glasgow Unique IDentifier (GUID) and temporary password.  This information will be sent to you by email so remember to keep your contact details up to date.

Full information on the registration process is available at:

If you are eligible for your fee sponsorship, and have not yet applied, please do so now.  You cannot register without this.

You will not be enrolled in classes until you have completed academic and financial registration.

As your Nursing programme has a fixed curriculum, all courses are compulsory.  You will therefore need to enrol on all BN1 courses, which are as follows:

Plan Code:  B700-2102

Catalog No.   Title
1002 Practice Learning Experience 1
1004 Health Studies and Nursing 1
1005 Nursing and Integrated Biomedical & Life Science 1

Once enrolment is complete you will be able to view your timetable through MyCampus.

International Students:

The UK Border Agency requires the University to take a copy of the passports and visas of all students who have a Tier 4 Visa.  In addition, we must tell the UK Border Agency if students holding a Tier 4 Visa to study at the University do not register.  If you have a Tier 4 Visa you will therefore need to attend a Tier 4 Check-in event before you begin your programme (or if you are already in Glasgow and renewing your visa, as soon as you receive your renewal visa).  Full instructions about how to ‘check-in’ are available at:

You will be required to sign in with the Nursing & Health Care School at further points in the academic session, as evidence of attendance.  You will be emailed in advance to request that you come in to the Nursing School to sign in.  Please ensure you access your University emails regularly to receive this and other important University communications.

Fitness to Practise:

A student who is registered for the programme of study leading to the Bachelor of Nursing (Honours) Degree/Bachelor of Nursing Degree is required, during practical training, to act in a quasi-professional role in relation to patients and therefore, as a condition of continuation in the programme, to undertake to comply with the principles of this Code of Professional Conduct and Fitness to Practise.
