1st year AU nursing student, need guidance for working in the UK after graduating

  1. 0
    Hi Everyone,

    I am currently in my first year of my university degree and my plan is to move to and work in the UK in 2013 after I graduate in 2012.

    A visa hopefully will not be a problem as my wife has UK ancestry and is a qualified teacher.

    If there is any information or advice that anyone could share with me I'd be most greatful.

    Nothing can really be sorted until you have completed your training and have met NMC requirements for International trained nurse. A full set of transcripts and a license plus 12 months experience is currently required for UK NMC requirements

    Bugger 12 months :-(

    Do you think that I would be eligible for post graduate study? I'm desperate to get out of Australia as soon as possible.

    Most post grad study is part time and still working with many seconded from their place of work (well used to be when I was living and working there)

    Post grad study if nursing may require you to be licensed in the UK and also may cost you more as International fees will apply. For you to get UK fees generally you are expected to have been a UK resident for 3 years

    Cheers for the info.

    It is a little disappointing for me that I may have to wait a little longer to escape the colony :-P

    I may work out in the sticks and earn some extra cash then *shudders*

    gaining experience will work out better for you. The UK is very expensive and nurse pay starts about 22000 and if looking at buying a house even with joint income doesn't always go far depending on where in the UK you are planning on living

    search for overseas nurses and look at the requirements.

    Thank you

    I'm doing a little more research into full time post graduate study options, It's expensive, but hopefully gets me to the UK sooner

    How are you getting on with this - did you find anything further out? i'm in a very very similar position except I'm finished in less than a year!
