NMC Competence Test Centre (CTC)

At Ulster University we provide part two of the NMC’s Test of Competence for nurses and midwives seeking registration to work in the UK with a designated test centre at our Magee Campus based in Derry~Londonderry.

The NMC will notify you of your eligibility to take part two (OSCE examination). In order to qualify for Part two you must have successfully completed part one and have provided the NMC with the correct documents.

To understand our processes, please refer to our important documents which can be viewed in our Supporting Documentation section.

We have also developed a candidate information booklet which will help you prepare for your OSCE examination.
