Your next steps
Learning and support
Your learning experience
A blended experience
We've worked hard to ensure our students have a rich learning experience even with the challenges posed by the pandemic.
You'll still split your time between learning theory and applying your knowledge to practice alongside other health professionals on your placements.
We can offer a wide variety of placements where you’ll put the theory you’ve learnt into practice.
Most placements are in travelling distance of Manchester, and our students are often employed by the hospitals where they did a placement.
You’ll enjoy access to a range of excellent study and learning facilities at Manchester.
These include our Clinical Skills and Simulation Centre, which replicates the experience of working in a clinical setting.
Support on your course
You'll have access to support through both your course and wider University services.
Student societies and the peer-assisted student support scheme will also enable you to connect with fellow students.
Academic advisors provide support to all of our students.
Hear senior lecturer Nigel Henderson explain how academic advising works, and how it will benefit you.
COVID-19 and your course
Responding to change
We hope to see you in person in September if everything is well.
Whatever happens, we'll adjust to follow government guidelines while maintaining a quality learning environment.
Watch lecturer Kim Wilcock discuss teaching and learning in the pandemic. A text summary is below.
Adapting our teaching
Below are examples of how we’ve adapted our teaching while restrictions are in place.
Course materials have been adapted to include a range of live and pre-recorded online activities including live seminars, pre-recorded video lectures and video demonstrations of practical skills.
Maintaining quality and student engagement remains a priority as we move towards more blended, flexible learning.
We are running some face-to-face sessions where it is possible and safe to do so.
Midwifery students will continue to go on placement and gain their practice experience, although this may work differently compared with previous years.
