Has any 1 applied to NMAS? did u have your qualications before you applyed to them or are you studying now and hoping they will get you in?

I ask this becase i am a AVCE Health and social care student on my second year and i thought i could apply through NMAS now in order to get a place for september 04 but have been told that i cannot apply with qualifications i have not yet gained only with the qualifications i already have which is not enough for Nursing. which means i will have to apply in october 04 for places in 05. I dont want to have a gap year really i just want to go straight on to uni
Do you think this is fair?

No thats well bad. One of my friends applied last year, depending on what course you want to do and where you want to do it, alot of them have january intakes aswell. Might be worth looking into.

Hey I answered this on another post u did, ( Im the one who started the degree/diploma debate!) Ive applied for both the nursing degree and the diploma. To be accepted on the diploma course you need a minimum of 5 GCSEs A-C. If you have not got this then the system is unfair....I think they should introduce conditional offers, like UCAS do, it would be alot fairer.

About NMAS
The Nursing and Midwifery Admissions Service (NMAS) is an agency which acts on behalf of the Department of Health to process applications for full-length, diploma-level, pre-registration nursing and midwifery programmes at universities and colleges of higher education in England.

The NMAS scheme provides a framework within which the application process takes place. Our timetable ensures that institutions receive applications in good time, and that you receive decisions promptly, so you can respond to an offer by a given date. Our database records the progress of the application and keeps you and the institutions informed.

You can make up to four choices of institutions and programmes. Enter them on the application form and remember you do not need to indicate your order of preference. Once the reference is added, the form is sent to NMAS.

Each institution considers the application and decides whether to interview you. The outcome of an interview is communicated to you through NMAS. All offers of places are unconditional - and you must already meet the statutory entry requirements at the time of entry.

If you fail to secure a place, you are eligible to enter the final stage of the application process, Clearing. In Clearing, applicants, guided by course closure information provided by us, may negotiate direct with institutions.

Types of programmes
The following table gives details of the pre-registration programmes for which NMAS processes applications. It also shows the Part of the Professional Register (the register of qualified nurses, midwives and health visitors in the UK, maintained by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC)) for which you will be eligible to apply after successfully completing the programme.

Applications not processed by NMAS
We do not process applications for degrees in nursing or midwifery, shortened programmes for qualified nurses or midwives and post-registration programmes. Other applications not processed by NMAS are courses offered by institutions outside England and adaptation programmes for nurses or midwives who qualified outside the United Kingdom. If you are interested in Scottish, Northern Irish or Welsh courses, see the useful contacts section below. The useful contacts section also lists contacts for careers in the armed services.

Academic and age requirements
You must possess the minimum statutory educational requirements of 5 GCSE/GCE O levels - grades A-C, or equivalent, before applying through NMAS. Midwifery applicants must include English language or literature plus a science or mathematics amongst their subjects passed.

Future changes to entry requirements

The NMC has agreed that it will discontinue setting specific educational standards. Instead, it will set general entry requirements that are relevant to professional needs. This change requires the rules for nursing and midwifery education to be altered. The existing educational requirements provided will apply until the new rules are approved by government.

NMAS will include details of any changes to entry requirements, as they become available, with the applicant pack on this website.

The minimum age at which you can start a programme is seventeen and a half; applicants to
