The NMC ToC Centre is located in the Faculty of Health and Life Sciences at both our Marston Road Campus, Oxford and at John Joliffe Campus, Swindon. The centre opened in January 2017, and we are one of three test centres within the UK. The NMC ToC Centre provides the assessments for candidates wishing to complete part 2 of the NMC’s Test of Competence Part 2 and requires the candidates to participate in Objective Structured Clinical Examinations (OSCE).
