The new curriculum was implemented in September 2012: it is both dynamic and innovative and designed to prepare students for the realities of professional practice.
A variety of learning and teaching strategies are used to deliver this, including scenario and enquiry based learning. Both theory and practice are graded in line with NMC requirements
