Our new Healthcare Community caters for Nursing and Midwifery students currently! We know studying a healthcare-related degree can be challenging, particularly with the frequency of placements, and we want to help! Working with your student representatives, we run various events and social activities for you to make friends and socialise with others on your course! 


Inter-Professional Learning Symposia (IPL) for 2018/2019

Within the School of Health and Education, we believe that gaining an understanding of other professionals' roles and skills in a shared learning context can benefit interprofessional team working in practice. We have students studying health, nursing, social work, midwifery, teacher training, allied health care, and integrative medicine courses and seek through our weekly Interprofessional Learning Symposia programme to provide a rich and deeper understanding of what different professionals have to offer within their respective sectors.

These sessions are:

  • Open to all students and staff, running between October and June
  • Offered late afternoon, on a weekly basis rotating between Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 16:00 and 17:30, to allow students to complete daytime lectures
  • Recorded with pre and self-directed learning materials uploaded to Moodle
  • Subject to demand can popular topics be scheduled more than once
  • Available with certificates of attendance to assist with personal development portfolios linked with the online evaluation feedback sheets.
