Notes on Professional Rights and Registration

Please note that programmes delivered overseas do not lead automatically to professional registration in the UK. Contact the individual collaborative partner for details.

Queen Margaret University has validated the following allied health professional (AHP) programmes in Greece:

  • BSc (Hons) Physiotherapy
  • BSc (Hons) Dietetics
  • BSc (Hons) Occupational Therapy
  • BSc (Hons) Speech & Language Therapy (Logopaedics)
  • BSc (Hons) Podiatry

These programmes are delivered by Metropolitan College at their campuses across Greece. If a graduate from these programmes wishes to work as a registered AHP in the United Kingdom, the graduate may apply to the UK Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) for registration through the international route.  Applications are considered on an individual basis and further details are available from the Health and Care Professions Council . While Queen Margaret University and Metropolitan College cannot guarantee that any individual graduate will be accepted for registration by the Health and Care Professions Council, we can confirm that there have been numerous examples of graduates from the programmes who have achieved registration through this route.

Graduates of Metropolitan College who wish to work as health professionals in Greece need to follow the process set out in Greek legislation. 

QMU also validates degrees in Nursing and Midwifery with Metropolitan College. These degrees are not approved by the Nursing and Midwifery Council. Following the UK's exit from the European Union, the legislation regarding recognition of nursing and midwifery qualifications in Greece has become more complex. The partners are liaising actively with the Greek and UK governments in order to resolve the difficulties that have emerged. Please contact Metropolitan College for more up-to-date information.
