The lecturers help you see your potential and encourage you to be the best. Being on placement has increased my confidence and given me experience of dealing with patients from all walks of life.”

  • "My course has been a wellbalanced mix of practical experience working in hospital wards or in a community setting, and theory. It’s really varied and interesting. The skills labs are set up to replicate a hospital ward – everything you do in a simulated environment is the way you’ll find it in real life. 

    Signing up to this course is one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. I enjoy it – every day I’ve got a smile on my face."

  • "As a mature student that had been away from education for over 30 years, the thought of university was quite daunting. My fears lifted from the very start of my course, I was encouraged to achieve personal goals with genuine support systems in place. UWS has been an unforgettable experience for me and one I will always treasure. The extensive library and resource materials have been complemented by the lecturing staff, who promote adult learning and personal growth. I cannot praise UWS highly enough, it has given me the tools and confidence to further my professional career and life stability."
    Stewart McKay, Staff Nurse
