You’ll develop your skills in clinical laboratories that are equipped with some of the most advanced teaching equipment available. In our state-of-the-art simulated Operating Theatre, for example, you’ll train in the delivery of basic care, right through to managing emergency situations.
This will enable you to reach a level of confidence and proficiency before carrying out procedures on real patients.
To give you hands-on experience of working with patients, combined with plenty of opportunities to apply your theoretical knowledge in the operating theatre environment, you’ll spend approximately 50% of your time in clinical practice during the course of your studies.
Each module is worth a specified number of credits: you take a combination of compulsory and optional modules, enabling you to cover key subject knowledge while developing your own interest. You must take modules worth a total of 120 credits at each level of the course.
