Online and in-person learning

Our blended learning nursing degrees provide online and in-person learning designed to enable you to study when and where you want and are available at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. You can view lectures on-line at a time that is convenient to you and fit this viewing around your other commitments.

You will use the latest in learning technology, including virtual reality learning, to gain a deep understanding of the knowledge and skills required to be an excellent nurse.

Partnerships with NHS Trusts

As these courses are delivered mostly on-line you do not need to be located close to one of our campuses in order to study the course. You will have a small amount of practical learning at one of our campuses in London, Scarborough or Coventry to support your on-line learning. We also have partnerships with NHS Trusts across several parts of England including the East and West Midlands, South East England, London and Yorkshire so your placements do not need to be close to campus. It may be possible to support placements in other areas of the country if required (please contact the course team with details of your location).

Virtual Simulated Placements (VSPs)

The on-line learning, including innovative virtual simulated placements (VSPs) which use software accessible from any computer, laptop, tablet, smartphone or even via virtual reality headset to give you access to virtual patients, situations and environments, such as hospital wards, simulated patients’ homes and any other space that you would access on a placement. See what virtual learning is like and how students can benefit from increased practice opportunities on the Patient Communication Simulators website. 

VSPs allow us to provide complex decision-making training that you may not get on an actual placement. We do this by creating a virtual world, a bit like a video game, where you can find information, fulfil tasks and treat virtual patients. We can mock-up patient X-rays and records, create role-play scenarios, add videos, 360 degree pictures and videos, and audio recordings to make this virtual setting seem real.

This can never replace holding a patient’s hand but it prepares you so that when you walk onto a ward you are not daunted.”

Builder switches career to nursing with our blended learning degree

I was after something that would allow me to build relationships and get to know patients and what they were going through; the holistic approach of nursing was the real selling point for me. Studying one module at a time on the course is intense, but it suits my style. I also like the flexibility of the course - all the material is there for you to study whenever you have time, and it works really well around family life, work and childcare.
