The B.S. in Nursing Studies (Top-up) (Distance Learning) (Hons) at University of Huddersfield provides the opportunity for qualified nurses to undertake a top-up degree through distance learning. 


About the Nursing Studies (Top-up) (Distance Learning) (Hons) program offered by University of Huddersfield 

The course aims to prepare you for the next stage in your career and helps you to develop the academic skills required to enhance your practice, as well as implement changes.  You will undertake exercises where you will engage with online materials and reflect on your understanding.

The course incorporates modules that will challenge your understanding of nursing practice. Our graduates have found the course to be very beneficial to their careers, although some had worked in the area for many years, this enabled them to gain a new perspective on their role.

As this course is distance learning you are not required to attend the University and can study at a time that meets your own personal and professional commitments.

You will have the opportunity to relate your studies to your own clinical practice. This involves exploring and reflecting upon a range of ideas within healthcare practice, helping you to develop the knowledge required to provide complex care.


This course will provide you with the opportunity to enhance your career progression and develop as a mentor.

In 2010, the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) amended its required minimum outcome for pre-registration nurse education to degree-level study. As a result, employers will increasingly require their nurses from Band five upwards to hold a degree qualification as a minimum.
