I choose UOC because of the proximity to my home and I knew that the university had a good reputation for people acquiring nursing jobs after graduating. One of the best things about the course was the support offered not only by my personal tutor but by the lecturers leading the modules.. I loved the nature of my particular course as it was really interactive, 50% of time in university and 50% out on various placements to support the theory we were learning". - Charlene Meadowcroft (Alumni, District Nurse, Cumbria Partnership).
