Students Urged to Consider Alternative Routes into Nursing

Back to news listings

The University of Worcester has a limited number of places remaining on a variety of different courses through the Clearing process, and is able to offer students an alternative pathway to their chosen career.

Due to the University’s outstanding reputation in Nursing, we frequently receive huge numbers of applications from highly-skilled candidates, and therefore offer a number of alternatives courses to help applicants fulfil their potential.

Some of these alternatives, offering ideal options for students looking to develop their expertise in the health and social care sectors, are our Foundation Degrees in Health and Social Care, Child and Adolescent Mental Health, Mental Health and Dementia Studies.

Benefiting from support from the University’s vastly experienced staff, students on these courses are able to develop the knowledge and skills sought by employers across the spectrum of health and social care.

A recognised qualification in its own right, a Foundation Degree gives students the chance to progress within the sector or onto further study at degree level.

Robert Dudley, the University’s Head of Nursing, Midwifery and Paramedic Science, explains: “Our Nursing course receives incredibly high quality applications, so we know how important is it for prospective students to enhance their prospects and to stand out from the crowd.

“Foundation Degrees in Health and Social Care, Child and Adolescent Mental Health, Mental Health and Dementia Studies give students the opportunity to do just that; the specially-tailored modules allow students to gain experience in areas which appeal to them, while also applying their skills in practical settings and combining their studies with part-time work.

“The courses focus on students’ personal and professional development and provide opportunities to develop study skills, meet learning needs and to develop and practice key skills in preparation for employment, further study and lifelong learning.”
