What you'll do

  • The curriculum addresses National Benchmarks and is split between 50% theoretical study - including time spent in small groups with other students who’ve chosen the same field of nursing as you - and 50% practical clinical experience.
  • You’ll undertake practical work experience placements, as well as spend time developing practical skills in our clinical skills labs using clinical patient simulators (manikins) and simulation model trainers.
  • Opportunities exist for an international experience by taking advantage of the University's extensive links in Europe and overseas. You can also take advantage of other voluntary international experiences in America, Oman, Tanzania and Finland.


Every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of our published course information. However, our programmes are subject to ongoing review and development. Changing circumstances may cause alteration to, or the cancellation of, courses. Changes may be necessary to comply with the requirements of accrediting bodies or revisions to subject benchmarks statements.

We reserve the right to make variations if we consider such action to be necessary or in the best interests of students.
