BSc Adult Nursing
Each day offers a new experience and the variety of the placements was unexpected. You get to experience a range of different healthcare settings and often the places you didn’t think you’d enjoy are the best.

What I particularly enjoy about the course is the input that guest speakers have. It's always interesting to see what other people bring to your field, and some of the lectures that allowed people to talk about their experiences of caring for their families have really been moving.
