Hello, I have been accepted into GCU adult nursing course (very excited). I am sure that I read/heard somewhere that in terms of holidays we get either June/July or July/August off.........I have since heard that this is not true. It is not a great big deal but just wanted clarification?

They said in our open day that nursing students tend to get the last two/three weeks of August off depending on placements.

If you go onto Glasgow Caledonian website and look up trimester dates, they already have 2017-18 dates up which will let you see some of the holidays.

thank you. I have a structure of the nursing timetable and there are 3 weeks on it for August - I must have misheard or misunderstood as I thought it was for longer ;o)

I work full time so actually the idea of 7 weeks off for the whole year is appealing as I only get 4 weeks annual leave at the moment ๐Ÿ˜€

I have an unconditional for Adult Nursing too but I am really undecided between Caley or UWS Paisley!! Big decision to make ๐Ÿ™ƒ

Awe I know.....time off is time off. I just have 7 weeks of school holidays to cover for my son. I am sure it will be fine
What is swaying you from picking one uni over another?

Placements has swayed me to UWS as I come from Argyll & Bute so if I can possibly have the option to go home for placement that would be a massive bonus. I have had also feedback from students from both unis but UWS has came out on top for me.

I did however prefer Caley facilities but I decided that wasn't enough to sway me. ๐Ÿ˜Š

I went to my first study day for GCU this week for 2nd year entry and we got issues with our S-OAR. It gives you the placement dates and holidays for this year in it. From what I can see

All students are off for 2 weeks in December, 1 week in April and 3 weeks in August.

1st year students go on placement 3 weeks in January (hub), 6 weeks March/April then the 3rd placement you do either May/June or July/August for 8 weeks and from what I gather you are then off for the weeks you are not on placement of those 2 choices you are off.

Year 2 placements are 6 weeks November time, 6 weeks Jan/Feb and nag again a split of either May/June or July/August for placement or holiday then 3 weeks back at hub in august

Year 3 placement is 12 weeks starting January and 13 weeks starting May

Unfortunately you wonโ€™t get your individual timetable until about a week before you start and classes run everyday so make it really difficult to work out what days you might be in until your allocated to the classes
