This course is an accelerated programme of study, delivered over two full calendar years (September - September). Due to the accelerated nature of the course, you will only have three weeks annual leave over the summer period (two weeks in June and one week at the end of the August); this means that you will spend the majority of the summer period in clinical placement, developing the required practical skills.
