You will be taught by expert staff and learn alongside adult and mental health nursing students, and students from other health and care professions.

Here you will safely practice clinical skills with other students, service users, carers, role players and hi-tech patient simulators under the guidance of experienced clinical and academic staff.

You will also have the opportunity to organise an elective placement in the UK or abroad.
