Our nursing courses will enable you to develop the professional attributes you need to be able to practice in a range of settings and deliver skilled, sensitive care to patients and their families. You will also benefit from the wide variety of clinical placements we can offer.
The School of Nursing is part of the College of Medicine, Dentistry and Nursing and is one of the largest nursing and midwifery education providers in Scotland. Nursing students come from a wide range of backgrounds and join a large international campus with a reputation for good student facilities and social life.
Our programmes reflect the ever changing face of health care in Scotland and address the political and ethical aspects of heath care provision.
You will gain experience in the clinical skills centres and participate in inter-professional learning with medical students.
The mental health programme prepares nurses to meet the unique and individual needs of clients and carers from childhood to old age.
Students gain an understanding of the complex and fascinating field of mental health and the management of mental health loss. The programme provides students with the ability to assess, manage and treat mental health clients and their carers within a multidisciplinary team.
The practice placements reflect the nature and variety of hospital and community settings for people with a mental health condition.
The nursing curriculum is currently under review, and is due to be approved during 2011.
Practice placements are provided in Tayside and Fife and students are allocated the majority of their placements in the vicinity of their term-time address.
It will be necessary for some clinical experience to be gained in placements further afield in order to provide students with exposure to a rich and diverse clinical experience.
Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).
Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.
All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
