Final chance to apply for nursing course

Today is the final day for those interested in studying for a degree in nursing to submit their applications.

The programmes in mental health nursing and adult nursing are both taught full time entirely on the Island over a three-year period.

Those who are accepted onto the course won't have to pay tuition fees and will receive a £5,000 annual bursary, as well as being taught in small class sizes and getting to undertake a range of placements.

A total of 20 places are available, with six exclusively for those interested in the mental health programme.

More information about the courses can be found on the Government's website.
