About Us

Welcome from the Nursing Team

Here at Aberystwyth we pride ourselves in delivering a learning experience which helps you understand what it takes to deliver excellent nursing care.  

Nursing at Aberystwyth University offers a bespoke and intimate learning experience. The local community and environment have helped us shape the curriculum. Our Healthcare Education Centre is newly established and houses the Clinical Skills Unit, a state-of-the-art simulation suite where students can learn clinical skills in a safe and supportive environment.

The Aberystwyth University nurse celebrates diversity, engages proactively with their learning journey and is flexible and confident to lead and deliver healthcare across both rural and urban settings. They understand the Nursing and Midwifery Council’s professional code of practice and how this guides the everyday approach to professional nursing practice. 

As a nurse your skills will be in demand, and your learning experiences during your course will allow you to enhance your self-awareness, develop confidence, and clinical expertise. Nursing is a versatile profession, with employment opportunities available within primary, secondary and tertiary care, community services, education, research, management, tourism, industry, public and private sectors, voluntary and charitable organisations. Once qualified, lots of opportunities are available to help you progress your career including roles in management, advanced and specialist clinical practice and research.

You can study part of your course through the medium of Welsh and if you are a non-Welsh speaker and wish to learn Welsh, there are conversational health-related Welsh lessons via a ‘cornel coffi a chlonc’ [coffee and chat corner].

A warm welcome awaits all.
