Internship Opportunities

As well as recruitment, we can also offer internship for Professionals and Trainees in other fields like engineering, education as well as other fields in health sector. The internship is accredited by the University of Leicester, one of the reputable Universities in the UK renown as a world class research centre.

You will have a wide variety of clinical opportunities through our many partnerships with hospitals in the region, from Leicester’s big city hospitals to Lincoln and Northampton, and through our many links with community practices

Throughout the internship you will learn from expert academics and medical practitioners working at the sharp end of the NHS. Their teaching is directly influenced by their expertise in such diverse fields as heart disease, cancer and genetics – some of the areas where Leicester’s reputation is truly global

The internship opportunity is also an opportunity you can take advantage of to experience what it is like practicing nursing in the UK to know if it is for you or not


The role of NMC

The Nursing and Midwifery Council is the professional regulatory body for nurses and midwives in the UK. They maintain a register of nurses and midwives allowed to practise in the UK. Their role is to protect patients and the public through efficient and effective regulation

English language requirements

Evidence we accept to prove your knowledge of English

When you apply to register with us we need to be satisfied you have the necessary knowledge of English to communicate effectively. Communication is defined as speaking, reading, listening and writing and your evidence must demonstrate competence in these four mandatory skills.

There are a number of pieces of evidence that we will accept:


If you cannot send the evidence we request, or we are not satisfied with what you send us, we won’t be able to consider your application.

We highly recommend you make sure you can meet our language evidence requirements before you apply to us. If you feel you are unlikely to do so you may wish to complete a language test before applying to us.

To avoid delays, you may wish to include evidence that you meet the English language requirements with your application. In this case, if your evidence meets our requirements you will automatically move to step 3 to complete your registration. If you have not submitted evidence of your language competence, we will ask you to do so.

Registered and practised in English

If you who wish to rely on evidence that you have registered and practised in English you must be able to satisfy us that:

  • you have completed an English language assessment or examination as part of your registration outside of the UK.
  • you have one year post registered practice in an English speaking setting
  • your registration is in a country where English is the first and native language.

You will need to provide us with the following:

  • a letter of good standing from your licensing authority and
  • details of the English language assessment that you undertook as part of your registration, and
  • a supporting reference from your employer.

Please note if you were not required to sit a language test by the regulator because you were taught and examined in a country where English is the first and native language, you will still meet this requirement

Trained in English

If you wish to rely on evidence that you recently trained in English you must be able to satisfy us that:

  • The course was taught and examined in English (transcript within the last 2 years)
  • The programme demonstrates your ability in reading, writing, speaking and listening in a range of environments.

You will need to provide us with the following:

  • A university transcript of training

Your evidence must confirm that the programme was composed of at least 50 percent clinical interaction. At least 75 percent of that must be with patients, service users, their families and other healthcare professionals must have taken place in English.

Please note, by recent we mean evidence related to English language competence that is less than two years old at the point of making an application to the NMC. If the information you provide is not clear, we will need to request further information from you

The ToC consists of two parts – stage one is a computer-based multiple choice test (CBT) and stage two is an observed structured clinical examination (OSCE).

Stage 1 – CBT

Applicants can take the CBT in their nearest available Pearson VUE test centre.

Stage 2 – OSCE 

Applicants sit the OSCE in the UK at one of our approved test centres.

Trained outside the EU/EEA

Information for nurses and midwives who trained outside the EU or EEA

If you have trained outside the EU/EEA and are applying to register as a nurse or midwife in the UK, please read our booklet for information about all stages of the process.

Registering as a nurse or midwife in the UK for applicants trained outside the EU and EEA

Begin or continue an overseas application


To check that the applicant is capable of practising safely and effectively in the UK, we will assess their qualification, training and experience against our standards. We will consider whether the applicant has the necessary post-qualifying practice and experience in each area of nursing or midwifery. This must be appropriate for the part of the register for which they are applying.

New applicants

Applicants must complete an online self-assessment of their eligibility to apply before beginning the application process.

Begin an application

There are different fees for different stages of the application process:

Application for nursing/midwifery £140
Part 1 test of competence (CBT) £130
Part 2 test of competence (OSCE) £992
Admission onto our register £153

Total £1415

Each professional field of nursing, including adult (general), children’s, learning disabilities, mental health and the midwifery profession, is examined by our test of competence. Part one is a multiple choice examination and part two is a practical examination called an OSCE (objective structured clinical examination).

Test of competence

In the UK, each field of nursing and midwifery is separate and distinct. Each requires three years of specialist pre-registration education and practice. The test of competence requires extensive preparation and study to make sure you can demonstrate knowledge, understanding and application of professional skills at the right level. See below for information on nursing and midwifery pathways, including specific competencies and the exam blueprints:

The test of competence is in line with our pre-registration standards and competencies for all nurses and midwives. There are standards for adult (general) nursing, children’s nursing, learning disabilities nursing, mental health nursing and midwifery. They cover professional values, communication, nursing decision-making and leadership.

Nurses and midwives work in a variety of clinical settings and they are exposed to a variety of settings during their education. All nurses and midwives at the point of entry to the register are competent to work in all professional areas of nursing or midwifery practice.

These areas of practice include acute care, long-term care, caring for healthy people, caring for patients with complex needs and morbidities, and caring for patients in the community setting including in their own homes. All nurses are expected to be able to care competently for people across the life span and respond to a range of needs. For example, a children’s nurse should also be able to respond to the needs of pregnant and postnatal women and people with mental health needs, physical disabilities or dementia.

Once applicants have passed the eligibility assessment, they will be asked to sit the first part of the test of competence. This will be a computer-based test of theoretical practice-based knowledge. The test format will be multiple choice and can be taken in test centres around the world. Applicants will need to contact Pearson VUE, our test provider, to book and pay for their test. For more information, please read the Candidate information guide for Part 1.

You must complete the entire application process within two years of passing the CBT. If you are unable to do this, you will need to re-sit your CBT and begin a new application with us.

The objective structured clinical examination (OSCE)

The second part of the test is the objective structured clinical examination (OSCE). This will act out scenarios which nurses and midwives are likely to encounter when they assess, plan, carry out and evaluate care. Each separate clinical examination is known as a ‘station’ and candidates will visit all the stations within a set time.

Each of the six stations has standardised marking criteria against which all candidates are assessed. Candidates are assessed by a panel of examiners and will be filmed for quality assurance purposes.

Candidates are expected to demonstrate safe and effective practice. The test of competence is based on current UK pre-registration standards.

You can take the OSCE in the UK at one of our approved university test centres. When we authorise candidates to take the OSCE, they should contact the university directly.

Full details about the OSCE processes and links to relevant resources can be found on the approved universities’ website, please follow the links below for more information.

Pass rates for the test of competence and OSCE

Applicants are required to attend a face-to-face identification check at the test centre on the day of the OSCE exam. At the ID interview you must produce the original versions of the documents you sent photocopies of. We will make final checks on your previous registration, and take a photograph for our records. Applicants applying for entry to the register through the old overseas process will be contacted separately through email, therefore please ensure your contact details with us are kept up to date.

We cannot issue you with a Pin, or place you on our register, until you have met the requirements of this check. Please do not attempt to make an identity check appointment until we have contacted you.

NMC International Registration > Registration

Immigration requirements for non-EEA nurses and midwives

If you trained outside the EU/EEA

We have been working closely with UK Immigration and Visas (formally the UK Border Agency) to make sure that there are appropriate provisions for applicants taking the test of competence: part two – the objective structure clinical examination (OSCE).

  • For those sponsored by an employer, it is expected that the sponsorship will formally start from the date of the scheduled OSCE, with arrival permitted up to 14 days ahead of that date. The sponsor may choose to continue to offer sponsorship in cases where the individual needs to re-sit the OSCE.
  • For those without sponsorship who wish to travel to the UK to take the examination, a visitor visa provision is being put in place. This will allow nurses and midwives to enter the UK on a six-month visitor visa specifically to take the OSCE.

Find out more about visas and immigration on the UK government website
