Course content

Course content

What will you study and when?

You will study a combination of core, field of practice and practice learning modules. The exact modules you will study will depend upon your chosen field of practice.

Our courses are informed by research and current developments in the discipline and by feedback from students, external examiners and employers. Modules do therefore change periodically in the interests of keeping the course relevant and reflecting best practice. The most up-to-date information will be available to you once you have accepted a place and registered for the course.

Having completed her studies and now working as a nurse, Tolu plans to progress with her career and continue to build her skills. “A career in nursing opens up several doors and so I can’t wait to see what the future holds,” she said.

Tolu said she chose the University of Worcester because she wanted a change of environment and to be out of her comfort zone. “I liked the quiet family-oriented vibe Worcester offered which was something I was looking for,” she added. “Being in Worcester helped me hone-in on my independence and learn how to make friends from different backgrounds in a new, unfamiliar, but exciting environment.”

Becky Shuck

Student Becky Shuck went from working as a beauty therapist five years ago to volunteering to work on the NHS frontline during the Covid-19 pandemic. Now she is celebrating her graduation after completing a Nursing degree. After witnessing the care of nurses first-hand, she knew this was the career for her, and she is now working full-time as a nurse.

She said: “It feels surreal to be graduating, I still have to pinch myself that I finished my degree and I'm working as a registered nurse. The three years have gone so quickly and the support during my degree has been exceptional.  It has broadened my skills, including those other than just nursing, such as being a course representative, representing fellow students’ interests. Going from a beauty therapist to a nurse is something I would never have done if I didn't have the support from the University.  I will always be thankful and grateful for all the opportunities the University has given me.”

Nursing student Becky, of Longbridge, Birmingham, was one of around 450 University of Worcester students who put themselves forward to work on the frontline last spring, including those studying to be nurses, midwives, paramedics and physiotherapists.

Becky now hopes to work in major trauma in the future and has even considered doing a Master’s.

Amber is now working as a Practice Nurse after completing her degree in Adult Nursing at the University of Worcester

“I still cannot believe that I achieved a First Class Honours,” said Amber. “Studying and working as a student nurse throughout the pandemic was definitely challenging. I was thrilled when I received my grades because then I knew that all the hard work had paid off!”

Amber discovered that she was dyslexic a year before she started university. "Learning how to live with dyslexia was difficult for me, but I was able to overcome the challenges with the help of the University of Worcester staff. They were excellent at supporting and encouraging me throughout the three years. They directed me to a study skills tutor and I received extra time for my exams. The help I received did not only aid my studies, it also gave me the tools to manage my dyslexia after my course. Receiving a First Class degree was a great life accomplishment and I believe anyone can succeed if they put their mind to it.”

Rachel Bray

Rachel Bray

Rachel Bray achieved her life-long ambition to become a Nurse and is now part of the Evesham Neighbourhood Team, providing care in the community.

“It was really hard work, but I absolutely loved it,” said Rachel. “It was such a brilliant course.  The tutors were really supportive; there were some tough times that I had to deal with, but they were brilliant. To someone else thinking about a Nursing career, I would just say go for it, it’s never too late, and also take it a day at a time.”

Rachel has now been accepted to do a Master’s in Evidence Based Healthcare at Oxford University alongside her work. 

Karen Burgoyne

Karen Burgoyne

Karen Burgoyne, a mature student from Ayr, achieved a First-Class Honours degree in Nursing during the pandemic. Karen has now secured a role as a Band 5 staff nurse in the Accident and Emergency department at Ayr Hospital. 

“Studying during the Covid-19 pandemic was by no means easy and has been a real eye opener of an experience but also an empowering one,” said Karen. She feels that the experience provided her with "the resilience and confidence ... to adapt and work under challenging circumstances."

Karen was diagnosed with dyslexia during her studies and was able to access additional support. “I started to retain information better, my academic writing improved and with the drive and determination this gave me, I started to get better grades,” she said, “I feel so proud that I did it. I finally achieved my dream job as a nurse and look forward to a future in nursing and the experiences and possibilities that will arise from this amazing role.”

Almy Anna John

Almy Anna John came to the UK three years ago to study for her BSC in Adult Nursing, and that was the first time she had ever left India.

“One of the main reasons I chose Worcester is because it is renowned for its nursing degree. I felt the way they aligned the placements and the modules helped put the theory into practice.

As a result of her incredible commitment to her work, Almy has been shortlisted for the Student Nurse of the Year: Clinical Research award at the Student Nursing Times Awards, referred to by many in the field as being the equivalent to the Oscars for nursing education.

Nora Saju travelled to the UK from Kerala in her home nation of India to study for her nursing degree at the University of Worcester three years ago and has just graduated.

Like all nursing students, placements in real hospitals, working with real patients on real wards was at the heart of her education and it was there, on an ITU that she found her true calling in life.

“I didn’t have any ideas what the Intensive Therapy Unit really was before I went there,” says Nora. “It was like a different world to me. Even on my days off I wanted to go in and help.”

Teaching and assessment

Teaching and assessment

The University places emphasis on enabling students to develop the independent learning capabilities that will equip you for lifelong learning and future employment, as well as academic achievement.  A mixture of independent study, teaching and academic support from Student Services and Library Services, and also the personal academic tutoring system enables you to reflect on progress and build up a profile of skills, achievements and experiences that will help you to flourish and be successful. Study skills are embedded into the early stages of the course to help promote student achievement and confidence with learning and assessment.


You will be taught through a combination of interactive workshops, lectures and seminars. Case studies (developed in partnership with service users) support a scenario-based approach to learning which facilitates small group activities and discussions, leading to shared and individual problem-solving and decision-making. A campus-based approach, complemented by appropriate use of both synchronous and asynchronous online learning including virtual learning environment collaborate, flipped classroom and e-learning packages, which promote personalised engagement with learning.

You will meet with your personal academic tutor 4 times in year one and 3 times in year 2 and 3.

At the core of the nursing programme is learning in a diverse range of clinical placements, learning in the real world which facilitates work-readiness, personal and professional development. Mandatory practice learning equates to 50% of the programme credit for each year. Your practice learning is mapped across the programme, gradually increasing as you gain in confidence, by year 3 you will complete over 55% of the programme in practice learning environments, supporting your transition from student to Registered Nurse. Your placements run in blocks across the year, with experiences normally in a minimum of 2 practice placements each year, in a setting appropriate to your chosen field of practice. The use of ‘spokes’ (visits to alternative placement settings) to maximise learning opportunities offered by diverse and non-traditional settings, offer exposure to opportunities to care for people from across the life-span, with mental and physical health needs and learning disabilities. Enhanced practice learning days, rooted in clinical practice, provide opportunities to consolidate learning, provide opportunity for reflection and inter-professional learning, including added value learning experiences and seeking additional support as necessary to promote inclusive learning in the practice setting.

While on placement you are supernumerary and are supported by a practice supervisor and assessed by a practice assessor, both having undergone appropriate preparation for their roles. Further support is provided by the inter-professional team, a nominated person (usually a member of the practice education team) and an academic assessor allocated for each part of the programme. You will have access to the internet and library resources whilst on placement.

You will be provided with opportunity to complete skills and simulated learning activities. All skills and simulation activities involve a range of people including students, peers, service users/carers, practitioners, technicians, academics and includes role play, ‘hands on’ practical skills sessions using a range of simulation manikins, video recording and playback. Formative feedback on performance is provided to facilitate safe and effective support for essential skills development, in state of the art simulation suites, replicating hospital and community practice learning environments. This learning is particularly important in year one, with 20 days allocated to prepare you for your practice learning experiences. This is reduced in year 2 and 3 to 10 days per year.

You will have opportunity to complete a UK or international elective placement, during Year 3, semester one. This can be either a 4-week or a 12-week experience, helping with the globalization of the programme and employability.

Contact time

In a typical week, a student will have around 15-18 contact hours of teaching during theory weeks. The precise contact hours will depend on the year of study as there is normally slightly less contact time in the final year in order to do more independent study. This allows for the completion of an independent studies project or dissertation, a sustained piece of individual work, which critically and ethically engages with professional practice, relevant to the students’ chosen field of practice.

Typically, class contact time per day will be structured around:

  • 2 hours lead lecture
  • 4 hours of seminar, workshop or tutorials

Nursing is campus-based, with approximately 85% of theory delivered on campus. Human anatomy and physiology for person-centred care, a year one, 15 credit module is delivered entirely online, supported by an e-learning package.

Whilst in placement, you will be expected to attend placement for 37.5 hours per week, experiencing the full range of hours expected of Registered Nurses. All practice learning hours, including skills and simulated learning must be formally recorded and signed for.

Independent self-study

In addition to the contact time, you are expected to undertake around 19.5-22.5 hours of personal self-study per week during theory weeks. Typically, this will involve locating and reading resources, including preparing for assessments.

Independent learning is supported by a range of excellent learning facilities, including The Hive and library resources, the virtual learning environment, and extensive electronic learning resources. 


3 years full-time.

45-week timetabled year (50% theory and 50% practice learning), plus 7 weeks pre-planned holiday each year


Timetables are normally available one month before registration. Please note that whilst we try to be as student-friendly as possible, scheduled teaching can take place on any day of the week; and some classes can be scheduled in the evenings.


The course provides opportunities to test understanding and learning informally through the completion of practice or ‘formative’ assignments.

Each module has one or more formal or ‘summative’ assessments which are graded and count towards the overall module grade, all summative assessments must achieve a pass grade. Assessment methods include written examinations and a range of coursework assessments such as essays, reports, portfolios, performance, presentations and a final year independent studies project.

The precise assessment requirements for an individual student in an academic year will vary according to your chosen field of practice, but a typical formal summative assessment pattern for each year of the course is:

Year 1

  • Scenario-based essay
  • Poster or leaflet with supporting paper
  • Group presentation
  • Unseen exam
  • Reflective assignment (visual or written)
  • Assessment of practice learning using the e-Practice Assessment Document, with evidence of medicines calculation test at 80%

Year 2

  • Report
  • Care plan plus supporting paper or individual presentation
  • Unseen, scenario-based exam
  • Essay
  • Critically reflective assignment (visual or written)
  • Assessment of practice learning using the e-Practice Assessment Document, with evidence of medicines calculation test at 90%

Year 3

  • Essay
  • Individual presentation
  • Dissertation
  • Critically reflective assignment (visual or written)
  • Assessment of practice learning using the e-Practice Assessment Document, with evidence of medicines calculation test at 100%
  • Professional discussion

You will receive feedback on practice assessments and on formal assessments undertaken by coursework. Feedback on examination performance is available upon request from the module leader. Feedback is intended to support learning and you are encouraged to discuss it with personal academic tutors and module tutors as appropriate.

We aim to provide you with feedback on formal course work assessments within 20 working days of hand-in.

Almost all graduates go straight into nursing employment, locally, nationally and in some instances internationally in a wide range of healthcare settings.

Students acknowledge that the programme improves their career prospects and future career aspiration. In 2019, 99% of leavers were in employment or further study, with 100% of the leavers in employment working in nursing roles. University of Worcester nursing graduates have made a significant contribution to the local NHS workforce during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Many nurses are employed locally, particularly with Worcestershire Acute Hospitals NHS Trust and Wye Valley NHS Trust. Other employment destinations include, Herefordshire and Worcestershire Health & Care Trust, Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Trust and Dudley Hospitals. Local employing organisations are invited to meet with finalists and discuss career opportunities and further professional development.

A number of initiatives are embedded to promote employment, including mock interviews and support with CV writing during year 3. Personal Academic Tutors also offer support with career planning and writing personal statements. The nursing teaching team and the Careers and Employability Service ensure details of Trust recruitment events and individual jobs are publicised.
