Course summary

You will study very broad subjects in your foundation year, which is designed to prepare you for a range of courses, not just one particular BSc degree.So although you apply to study a BSc in a specific course – in this case BSc Adult Nursing – the foundation year sets you up for a number of other possible degrees starting the following year. It may be that you don’t end up doing a degree in precisely the same subject as your foundation year.This flexibility is one of the great things about the foundation year category - Health and Life Sciences; it allows you to find out more about your interests and talents before focusing on a three year degree. The foundation year also helps us at BCU to make sure we help to match you to the degree that fits you best.You will need to be assessed for progression on to your second year, which would be the first year of your BSc-level degree.Adult nursing is a rewarding career that offers endless opportunities. This degree enables you to work in a wide range of settings and is the ideal foundation for further study. The programme emphasises patient-centred care, integrating theory with practice to gain professional competence. The training incorporates purpose built facilities including our Virtual Home Environment, commended by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) for creating live simulations for students to rehearse practical scenarios. Delivered as 50 per cent theory and 50 per cent practice, the course will provide you with a wide range of experiences, as well as continuous individual support and encouragement from both university personal tutors and clinical mentors. Extracurricular experiences include visiting clinical areas in Pittsburgh, USA, and we are currently expanding our portfolio of opportunities for overseas visits, giving you the edge in later job interviews.
