Oxford School of Nursing and Midwifery

Modules and degree structure

  • All modules on the programme are compulsory and students have to achieve a pass mark on all modules to progress.  If students wish to exit with the interim award, they need to have successfully completed all compulsory level 7 modules, and then undertake a single work-based learning project to gain 180 credits at level 7.  The WBL project will enable them to undertake a research/evaluation project within their clinical area and build upon the research knowledge gained within the programme to date.
