    Well the employment rate for nhs degrees are normally around 99% so finding a job wouldnt be an issue really but its whether its the right career for you that matters.

    I'm in my 3rd & final year/months of the MH degree, I absolutely love it! The 6 placements we get are so different so it helps narrows done what area you want to work in! It's brilliant!!
    Also, the NHS jobs website advertises the jobs, have a look on there to see local jobs. People are always recruiting newly qualified band 5's so its not hard to get a job.. its just knowing where u want to work!

    Hiya,
    Not too sure, it depends where you apply. Different Uni's have different entry requirements. Mine was 240 UCAS points. I actually failed 2 of my AS Levels, and only passed psychology, but ended up doing Health & Social Care Extended Dip. as i moved colleges cos i moved across the country, afterwards and then applied for nursing. It just depends on entry requirements for Uni!
