The academic year starts early September and ends late the following August. Students must attend 42 weeks in total in each year of the programme. Students have 10 weeks non term time (NTT) in each year, over Christmas, Easter and the summer.
50% of the teaching for Child Nursing students will take place in healthcare placements, and the other 50% will be taught at university.
This degree has recently been revised in line with new curriculum guidance from the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC)
It is a three-year, full-time carefully integrated modular programme of theoretical and clinical study to provide structured development of professional skills.
Students will be encouraged to be active rather than passive learners so time spent in University will demonstrate different and varied teaching patterns including lectures, seminars and enquiry based learning; including student presentations, debates and group work.
Some modules are available to study through the medium of Welsh. Please contact Amanda Jones for further information.
In practice, students are supervised and assessed by an experienced mentor. In university, they are assessed through exams, essays, presentations, and group work. Students are tested not only on their skills and knowledge but on their values and behaviour(s) too.
