    Here are some general questions and answers about Nursing Courses at Middlesex University. If you have questions other than these, just ask

    -Do you have to do a Maths and English Test at interview?
    All prospective student who apply for nursing will be invited to carry out a Maths and English Test before they are interviewed. These tests have to be passed otherwise an invitation for interview will not be made. There are some revision tips on the MDX website.

    -When will I start placement?
    The course is split into two streams, (yellow and green) in your first year green will go out to placement 6 weeks into the course and yellow will go out to placement after christmas. You will be told which stream you are in during induction.

    -Are there many exams?
    During the first year there are no written exams, however there are practical exams to be carried out in order to demonstrate the clinical skills you have learned. There are also written assessments throughout the year.

    -Does Nursing Courses get the same holidays other university courses?
    No. All nursing courses generally tend to start before other courses and finish for holidays after the other courses. There are however reading weeks throughout the year, though not as many as other courses might have.
