Summary of additional costs that may be incurred when undertaking a nursing or midwifery course
Nursing programmes are taught in three geographic locations:
You must apply for your choice of taught site at the time of application. It is recommended that you consider the cost of accommodation before making this choice.
Whichever site you choose you may be required to travel to placements and to cover any associated costs. This may take the form of a bus trip to a local area or further away to ensure the appropriate experience is provided and as a result may require you to have a second accommodation in the placement area.
Nursing students undertake placement activity between 20-23 weeks in each academic year. Placements for Nursing programmes are provided across the Southwest and surrounding areas with bases in Cornwall, Exeter, North Devon, Plymouth, Torbay, Taunton and Somerset.
Student midwives undertake the theory component of the programme on the Plymouth campus only.
Midwifery placements are undertaken in one of the geographic areas shown below for the duration of the programme.
