Students will normally have studied a 'health assessment module' or are required to pass a health assessment exam organised by the course leaders. Students must have the written support of their line manager and access to a suitably qualified senior clinical mentor for the duration of their studies. Applicants whose 1st language is not English should have an IELTS of 6.5 overall, with no component lower than 5.5.
