Welcome

Welcome to your first year in the School of Nursing and Midwifery at the University of Plymouth. You are starting on a fascinating intellectual and professional journey and you will need to stay focused and work hard, but should also aim to enjoy your studies and make the most of your time as a member of the School of Nursing and Midwifery and the University.
You will see from the timetable below that Induction week will give you the chance to find out more about the Nursing programme and to meet staff and fellow students. You will also become familiar with the University both its campus and the services available to support you. There are so many opportunities for you to engage with, which will add to your experience and help you grow both academically and personally.
