    Can I clarify you are doing a different degree and will graduate with a 3rd and are looking to do a nursing degree?
    I wouldn't worry, plenty of people apply with 3rds or with other qualifications.
    Email the universities you're looking to apply to.

    I graduated with a 3rd in my first degree and contemplated the pgdip for adult nursing. A lot of the places that offered the course wanted a minimum of a 2:2 so I didn't bother inquiring as I only had about a years experience as a HCA at the time. I'd email the admissions departments of the universities you're interested in as they'll look at you as a whole rather than just your degree class. I start the 3 year adult nursing undergrad course in the morning and feel like it was the best route for me due to only having 2 years experience. So yeah, contact the universities you're interested in, they're the only ones who can say for sure if they'd consider you or not

    It's already been said but most of the unis I've looked at ask for a 2:2, some for a 2:1. However lots of them say that they will take other factors into account like relevant work experience etc. It is definitely worth calling the unis you're interested in to chat it through with them.
