Employability

Further your career prospects

LJMU has an excellent employability record with 96% (HESA 2017) of our postgraduates in work or further study six months after graduation. Our applied learning techniques and strong industry connections ensure our students are fully prepared for the workplace on graduation and understand how to apply their knowledge in a real world context.

After graduating with your Masters, you may choose to use your enhanced skill set to move up the career ladder, or to pursue a new direction or specialism. For many nurses, being able to implement their learning in practice is the key driver and reward.

As a degree profession, nursing sees the added value that research, learning and academic study can have on the patient journey, quality of care, and, of course, your personal and professional development. Key to this is lifelong learning, which is supported by the Nursing and Midwifery Council through revalidation.
