How your course will be delivered

We will be offering a blended approach to teaching and learning.

This will involve on-campus teaching, synchronous remote teaching, and live and asynchronous pre-recorded lectures. You will have the opportunity to utilise the clinical skills rooms and will attend clinical learning environments with our partner Trusts. 

Key points

Induction

There will be a two-week induction period starting with the central university induction in the week commencing 12 September 2022.

The Nursing programme induction will start from the week commencing 19 September, and will incorporate a range of on campus and online events where students are introduced to all elements of the programme, and will meet their field groups and teaching staff.

For this professional programme, all students are required on campus from September.

During this week, you will also be introduced to core Semester 1 units of study, which will address the professional components of Nursing, plus an introduction to Clinical skills.

Teaching and learning

Semester 1 teaching will start in the week commencing 26 September 2022.

We are planning to deliver a blend of online and face-to-face sessions.

We provide a blended approach to teaching and learning. This means that lectures will be delivered on campus and online. When provided online, lectures will be pre-recorded and will incorporate smaller learning components.

On-campus face-to-face teaching will incorporate theory-led seminars. All small group seminar sessions will be supported by an academic member of staff with additional guided resources, which you can access in the Blackboard online learning platform.

Clinical learning environments

The clinical learning environments we send you into in Year 1 are still recovering from the pandemic. Due to this recovery and our top priority of keeping you and patients safe, we will undertake a risk assessment of all students accessing these areas, but fully expect you to access our clinical areas in Semester 2.

Academic advisors

You will be allocated to an Academic Advisor who has a professional qualification from your field of practice (Children and Young People, Adult or Mental Health).

These meetings will take place regularly, and will address your progress through the programme, and also provide an invaluable pastoral support opportunity.
