There's not such a thing as thee best university for Nursing. I studied at Edinburgh Napier for midwifing and it was second to none teaching with staff there. A registered midwife.

***********************************************
But in Edinburgh you have Napier - which has over 95% success rates for passing your nursing degree course.

Also in edinburgh there's - ( 1) Queens Margaret University on outskirt on borderline of Edinburgh & Musselburgh. (2) Edinburgh university.

Glasgow you got - University of West Scotland in Hamilton/Paisley & Ayr as 3 campus's they got ). (2) Glasgow Caledonian - this is main one (3) Strathclyde University, (4)) Glasgow University.

There's Stirling University
There's Abertay University ( campus in Kirkcaldy & Dundee area ).
There's Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen
There's university of the Highlands and Islands in Inverness.

********************************************

Like post #2 said about Edinburgh as its full of history plus lots of things to do & see and bars etc.

Glasgow has similar history to explore and places to go and see and lots of nightlife as well.

Stirling you have history with castle plus history of the battles over the years, there's nightlife as well. Not far from great walks with loch Lomond national park.

It probably doesn't matter where you go for nursing (I think it follows the same rationale as medicine), but some universities that are generally good all around are Dundee, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Strathclyde, St Andrews (although I don't think they do nursing).

Napier university has over 95% pass rate for nursing courses and is highest in Scotland........
Don't matter where you go for a nursing course as the course is same regardless as it how you get taught it at each university is the only thing is different.

But that don't matter as long as the person pass a credited degree course for the NMC. No it ain't hard to get in as long you meeting the university minimum entry requirements and you do a good personal statement and if successful there you'll get a interview and you'll need to perform good and then hope you'll get a offer.

I heard that they prefer Scottish first then they give places to others. Being international student, i think it's hard for me to get into Scottish Universities.
So, I will put it as a back up plan.

No they tend to treat everybody equal but I think that they have xxxx allocation of international students they take on each year so maybe this where you thinking on this.

You won't know untill you apply to universities about it.

You could always contact them and get information on things so you know the situation okay.

Hi potnoodelss
You are welcome okay x

Good to hear you finally got the applications away yesterday for your chosen universities.

Good choices with your universities like and Hull seem fine.

Oh I see you needing written proof of A-levels & level 3 extended dip for RGU which I never knew of this but do now.
So RGU is top choice for you and hope you get this providing you provide them with relevant information you said they asking for.

Good luck with all of them okay and hopefully you'll get offers of interviews in due course.

Yes update me on offers you get and which one you goto as appreciated ☺

You will ALWAYS be employed with courses like nursing and midwifery. Still, though, you should've gone to the University of Aberdeen

They have:
Mutated Seagulls
big castle
big castle 2
white big castle
And apparently some dolphins.
