Seven students from the Bath College Care Academy spent the day in Bristol at the Faculty of Health and Applied Sciences Department of University of the West of England (UWE).
During the day they were paired with current first and second year Nursing Students and attended lectures and seminars with them.
They were able to find out more about Nursing study programmes and about student life. One student said “I learnt lots from the students, I asked lots of questions, they were very nice and they tried to answer all my questions.”
During lunch there was a reflective practice session where students were able to speak to both students and lecturers to find out further information.
The students really enjoyed the day. One student said “It makes thinking about going to University less overwhelming, and I now have an understanding of the process”
