Oh right that sounds good,

What exactly does she want to do at the hospital at the minute does she want to work as HCA to gain experience?

If so she could work within the community or other settings as long as she. Has relevant skills etc

Hi Vezza2002

There are 70 places available (subject to change) per cohort.

Due to the current circumstances, the University is offering some online learning as well as face-to-face teaching wherever possible.
For lectures the students are usually in the full year group, and in the current first year there are 70. Seminars are split into small groups and the year group is split into four. The year group is also split into small groups for the practical sessions too.

I hope this helps, but let me know if there's anything else I can help with.
