If there's someone on here who studies nursing at one of these unis, they'll be able to give you an opinion. Ultimately, the answer is... none of them is better than the others for nursing. This is not a slight on any of them, just that with nursing degrees, as long as it's NMC accredited then you finish being in the process of getting your NMC registration. The NMC don't care which uni you attended just that they've accredited their course. Future employers care about you having a nursing degree (from wherever, they don't care where) and the all important NMC registration.
Things to consider with these 3 unis are:
- do you like the campus/city?
- do you like the sound of the course?
- what are the department facilities like?
- where are placements? (This will always be with hospitals and community services in NHS, private and voluntary services local to the uni. The vast majority are accessible by foot or short public transport journey. Be prepared for shifts).
- accommodation - can you get a longer lease to cover extra length of nursing course and placements?

It doesnt matter - all Unis train Nurses to the same accredited standard, the NHS wont care where you trained - and neither will your future patients. This really is a subject where 'which Uni' has no impact.

I’m the mother of someone on here!
Try looking at where your placements will be and the transport/parking availability.
Usually you will be moving around for placements and the easier it is to get to them early in the morning or later at night the better!
Also, try chatting to students on the nursing courses. They will hopefully be honest with you about the courses they are on.

Hello! I've taught on a level 3 nursing program for 10 years so I am used to conversations around which University to go too. The good news is you have a choice of three really good ones. Geographically, I have had more students go to Huddersfield University. I have a very positive relationship with Leeds Beckett and I've been very impressed with their Education department at Headingley in particular, and have not heard a bad word Nursing wise.

I would attend some of the online open days, and if you can, have a mooch around the cities to get a feel for the area.

Thank you! I am drawn to Huddersfield University, I’m also quite familiar with the surroundings since I stayed there for the whole summer and absolutely loved it.
