Adult Nursing at Glenside Campus


The support at UWE Bristol is really good, from lecturers to tutors, mentors on placement and The Students' Union.


I overcame my biggest challenge. I always wanted to care for people, but had few qualifications. Now I have gained a qualification in nursing and boosted my self-confidence.

Adult Nursing at Gloucester Campus


Kimberley explains how her unsuccessful first application for the Adult Nursing course only made her more determined to succeed.


I think the best thing about the course is the placements – my community placement was fantastic!

Children's Nursing at Glenside Campus


You come out prepared for a job at the end of it. Whether you want it to be on the wards or in the community, you're getting a preparation to carry you forward.

Learning Disabilities Nursing at Glenside Campus


It’s good to know where the job is going and very positive to see that learning disability nursing is evolving all the time, creating more opportunities.


Becca explains why she loved studying to be a Learning Disability Nurse – helping people to make the most of their lives.

Mental Health Nursing at Glenside Campus


The course is challenging, but the lecturers ease you in to the course. It can be quite emotional but it’s really rewarding when patients say “thank you for helping me”.

Mental Health Nursing at Gloucester Campus


Volunteering at a hospice gave me the inspiration and the motivation to change my career by studying Mental Health Nursing at UWE Bristol Gloucester Campus.


The best thing about the course is learning about mental health. I enjoy the lectures, learning in a group, and the placements reinforce the lectures.

Midwifery at Glenside Campus


There are opportunities for midwives to travel the world – I'm hoping to work for a year in New Zealand.
