Nursing Studies: Adult Nursing, BSc - 2016/17

5.0 27/04/2017
What I would highlight: I finished my Nursing Studies at Canterbury Christ Church University last month. I really enjoyed my time there on the nursing course.. Plenty of good memories and times... Just an amazing experience, I have no regrets. These past three years have set me up for the rest of my life. I chose this university based on its location, wide open campus and that the course I wanted to do was interesting. I enjoyed my time as an undergraduate here, which further reinforced my decision to do a post-graduate. Also there were over 50 pubs within the city walls - now come on!

Nursing Studies: Adult Nursing, BSc - 2016/17

What I would highlight: Practice placements were definitely the best part of the course. Gaining experience in different clinical areas was really interesting. The opportunity to work as part of a team is great and it helps with the transition from student to qualified nurse.
What could be improved: I personally felt that the balance between academic modules such as ethics and research, were focused on a lot more than practice related modules. Knowledge and understanding of these subjects is really important in our line of work, however I felt there was a lot more time spent on this, and no where near enough time spent on areas such as anatomy and physiology and pharmacology. I feel that more knowledge of these subjects would have Increased my confidence when starting out in the profession.

Plant Science

Course programme

94% of School of Human and Life Sciences graduates were in employment or further study six months after completing their studies. DLHE 2013-14 Where better to study plant sciences than in the ‘Garden of England’? The resulting qualification will not only make you highly employable within this industry, and allied support industries, but will also equip you with a range of transferable skills highly valued by all sectors from farming to finance. Plants are fundamental to all life on Earth, not only providing atmospheric oxygen, food and materials such as cotton, wood, paper and rope, but also perfumes, beverages and cures for disease. The Royal Society recently issued a statement warning of an impending worldwide skills shortage in the agricultural sciences that would endanger our ability to deal with rising populations, citing plant breeding, plant pathology, agronomy, crop physiology, agricultural entomology, weed science and post-harvest biology as key areas in which shortages are likely. This degree course includes strong elements of all of these disciplines.
