World-Renowned Hospital Placements

You will be taught and supported by leading academics, nurses and midwives. Our courses provide you with the knowledge and experience needed to embark on a professional healthcare career. We teach health practitioners to focus on the patient, and give you the confidence to speak up when they cannot. You'll gain valuable experience in a wide range of clinical settings, with placements available at world-renowned hospitals in London and South East. Your time will be split between 50% in academic study and 50% in clinical practice. You will be able to practice theory hands-on in our simulation facilities, then take this with you on placement. We design our courses in partnership with healthcare providers, commissioners, and The LSBU People's Academy, ensuring that our students begin their career with a wealth of knowledge and practice behind them.
