Undergraduate teaching methods

During your course, you will have a combination of School-based study and periods on placement gaining practical experience – both elements are compulsory.


You will undertake a variety of placements during the 3 years in various settings in the North Wales area. Placements are organised as close as possible to your home address, however some travel to placements will be necessary.

You will begin by observing professionals at work and you will be expected to participate in the delivery of nursing/midwifery care from very early on in the course, under supervision, in order to develop your own skills and competence. A variety of course work assignments will also need to be completed.


You will be supervised by a personal tutor, who is also a registered nurse/midwife and you will receive mentorship supervision whilst on placements from practising nurses/midwifes.


Theoretical work and practical work will be assessed through assignments, examination, and portfolio development. Your placement will also be assessed, with an emphasis on the development of your attitude, behaviour, practical skills and competence.

Please see the Undergraduate Course pages for specific information on course structure and teaching methods.
