The optional placement is organised and wholly funded by the student. When calculating costs students must consider accommodation, travel and all daily living costs.
Understanding the international context of professional practice is part of our philosophy to enable students the scope to explore nursing in a different context, to enhance them personally and professionally.
Optional placements require careful planning and, while you are registered with the University, you remain a student for whom we have a legal duty of care. That means that we have liability for our students on optional placements and we will require you to discuss your plans with your personal tutor.
