I chose the University of Leeds for several different reasons. As a student nurse, you want to ensure that you are not only receiving the highest quality teaching at a world-class University but to work in a Trust that truly puts its students first. Leeds Teaching Hospitals Trust is renowned for its great student-orientated approach to care.

Here in Leeds, the course is arranged brilliantly. As a degree, it is essential that you are being taught by accredited tutors and professors, and the staff at the University are at the highest level of their fields. You are taught these modules by professors who themselves were once nurses or healthcare professionals.

This ensures that you are taught relevant and appropriate knowledge. The degree is weighted entirely evenly, with 50% of your time in University and 50% of it on placement, meaning that you are able to effectively back up your knowledge in practice.
