^^ Yup, can you post fees that shall be collected or perhaps a ballpark figure.
It states there that the course fee for International Students per annum for HNC in Social Care or Health & Social Care is GBP3,300 (PHP224,400 @ GBP1 = PHP68) and for ABP Postgraduate Diploma in Health Care Management is GBP3,950 (PHP268,600).
It also mentions that the course fee for Preparation to joint the Overseas Nursing Programme is on application.
Anyway, I have found this in the Park Royal College website:
ONTO College: Collaborative Partnership
Park Royal College is delighted to work in a collaborative partnership with ONTO College to provide this new professional pathway.
Park Royal College offer prospective students a Level 6 qualification - the SQA Professional Development Award (PDA) in Practice Learning - which is designed to enable nursing practitioners trained overseas to reflect upon their professional practice, develop advocacy and facilitation skills as well opportunities to consider contemporary issues as they apply to social care and health through the disciplines of psychology, sociology, critical thinking, ethics and philosophy.
It is important for interested candidates to note that the Professional Development Award is not a clinical programme and that Park Royal College do not deliver the Overseas Nursing Programme; PRC facilitates progression to this programme but the PDA is a prerequisite for consideration for referral to the ONTO ONP programme.
Course participants can request to be referred to ONTO for consideration for admission to the Overseas Nursing Programme run by ONTO.
For further information about this professional pathway please contact Aaron Liston on 0208 965 2662, Ext. 112.

I feel that Iíve got loads of common sense but one needs to use more than that to be able to know, understand and interpret correctly the UK Immigration Rules. One also needs to have good reading comprehension and researching skills plus bits of analytical and critical thinking to sift through them and then choose the relevant and pertinent rules that apply to oneís circumstances.Caveat Emptor? Use your common sense, if we are not complying to immigration rules set by UKBA and if we are not doing what we are telling our students that we can provide them a work permit, then how do you explain the 130 FIlipino students that we have right now.
Besides, going abroad to study or work is a life changing decision to make and I donít think one should just rely on common sense to contemplate about it.
Of course, you can have 130 Filipino students since Park Royal College is a Highly Trusted Sponsor under Tier 4 PBS Ė I have not ever disputed or doubted that status of PRC in any of my previous posts. But again, as I have already explained earlier, I personally feel that it is misleading to say that you can provide your students with work permits. To reiterate, work placements probably (through your care home partners or contacts I reckon) but not work permits.
I just wonder how many of those 130 Filipino students you have who are registered nurses in the Philippines can manage to get employed not as carers or auxiliary aides but as NHS nurses under a Tier 2 visa after they finish their courses.
This thread is a forum where people exchange varying opinions and different ideas. The words contained in my posts or comments are my opinions based on my personal experiences while living in the UK and my own understanding of the UK Immigration Rules. This is not a court of law where parties are bound by the strict rules on evidence.Yes, I understand where you are coming from but the thing is, don't use such words if you don't have a solid proof that we can't provide nurses a work permit.
From my reading and understanding of the UK Immigration Rules, only Tier 2 (& Tier 5) Sponsors can provide Certificates of Sponsorship (COS) in order to employ migrant workers. This is what replaced the Ďwork permití route which was prior to the implementation of PBS. (See Register of Tiers 2 & 5 Sponsors:
Park Royal College is a Highly Trusted Sponsor under Tier 4 Ė meaning PRC can sponsor people to come to the UK to study (but not to work). Granting arguendo that you have contacts (i.e., 300 work placement providers you are in partnership with) that are Tier 2 sponsors, you have on the other hand categorically stated in another thread that AIMA Group (which includes Park Royal College) is not an employment agency nor does they send workers abroad. So how can your organisation act on their behalf then and commit them to offer employment with work permit under Tier 2 PBS (and not just work placement) to your students after they finish their courses?
Any person from outside the UK wishing to study, work or visit the UK should refer to the UKBA website since it is the primary online source of official information regarding UK Immigration Rules. And this is the reason why I keep on quoting the rules found in the UKBA website to explain my issue against your claim.You can quote any UKBA rules that you want, report us to UKBA if you want (just provide them proof of course!)but the number of our students just keep on increasing.
I donít care if you keep on getting increasing number of students to enrol in your courses. What Iím concerned with is the possibility of a PExer Filipino nurse going to UK under a Tier 4 visa and highly expecting to get a Tier 2 visa later on to enable them to work as nurses but instead ending up on a work placement as a career or an auxiliary aide after spending thousands of pounds in getting a Level 6 qualification. Ė such scenario is going to be really frustrating for a migrant nurse and I know this because I personally have some friends and acquaintances in Norwich (where I currently live) and in London who have experienced this.
It sounds really tempting to send an email to UKBA with a link to this thread as per your suggestion.
Nice to hear that! Congratulations!Park Royal College was once again thoroughly inspected by UKBA and once again passed and is still a HIGHLY TRUSTED SPONSOR. You must have heard that all colleges must now have Educational Oversight from QAA.
Actually, Iím not particularly enjoying reading and replying to your posts. But Iím enjoying being able to post my opinions based on relevant and pertinent information I have gathered which I hope would be useful to other PExers, especially the Filipino nurses who are reading this thread.Enjoy replying to my post but this time I'm not gonna reply I'm done explaining to you.
Paano po kapag wala pang experience and hindi padin nakakapagtake ng IELTS, ano po ba yung advisable sa ganitong level? is it possible to become a RN in countries like Canada, UK or new zealand kahit walang experience? sorry wala po talaga akong idea kaya sa inyo po ako nagtatanong since malawak yung idea nyo regarding this, thanks in advance!
@ pinoysanorwich, please enlighten those nurses like us na nag uumpisa palang po sa nursing career, sobrang maappreciate ko po yung reply ninyo, saka medyo nangangapa din po ako dito sa pinoyexchange.
An IELTS score of at least 7.0 is required to take ONP. You can find in the IELTS website the testing centres nearest to you.
In my humble opinion, you will increase your chances to get employed as a nurse in the UK under Tier 2 PBS if you have the relevant work experience and skills in the fields of nursing that are presently included in the shortage occupation list, as follows:
a) specialist nurse working in operating theatres
b) operating department practitioner
c) specialist nurse working in neonatal intensive care units.
The Nursing & Midwifery Council (NMC) is the nursing and midwifery regulator in the UK. You can find more information about registering as a nurse or midwife in the UK from this guide which I found from the NMC website.
On the other hand, the NHS Jobs website (http://www.jobs.nhs.uk/) is the dedicated online recruitment service for the NHS. Every NHS trust in England and Wales advertises job opportunities with said website.
I hope the above information have been useful to you.
