Course details
Course UCAS code: B76F
Qualification type:
  • BSc (Hons), Full-time Including Foundation Year , Duration: 4 Years
Course Summary:
You will study very broad subjects in your foundation year, which is designed to prepare you for a range of courses, not just one particular BSc degree. So although you apply to study a BSc in a specific course – in this case BSc Mental Health Nursing – the foundation year sets you up for a number of other possible degrees starting the following year. It may be that you don’t end up doing a degree in precisely the same subject as your foundation year. This flexibility is one of the great things about the foundation year category - Health and Life Sciences; it allows you to find out more about your interests and talents before focusing on a three year degree. The foundation year also helps us at BCU to make sure we help to match you to the degree that fits you best. You will need to be assessed for progression on to your second year, which would be the first year of your BSc-level degree. The BSc (Hons) Mental Health Nursing course will help you develop the knowledge, skills and values you'll need to meet the mental health needs of a diverse population. This may be empowering individuals on their unique journeys to recovery, or providing ongoing high-quality care to support people of all ages so that they can experience a full, active and meaningful life. Birmingham City University is the largest regional provider of qualified staff to the NHS (for health and social services), with 98.5% of our nursing students progressing to graduate-level work or further study within 6 months of completing the course (DHLE Survey 2015/16). By employing a variety of innovative and contemporary teaching methods, this programme will equip you with the necessary knowledge and skills to thrive as a mental health nurse, with several of our alumni being awarded prizes at a national level for their achievements. Extracurricular experiences include the opportunity for international visits through our Go Abroad scheme, giving you the edge in later job interviews.

Birmingham (aka "Brum") is said to be the new London. The size certainly matches, but the famous tourist attractions may be a bit thin on the ground. However, the city feel and atmosphere is always present and you will never run out of things to do. Situated over 3 main campuses, BCU offers a huge range of experience of the city - you'll never finish exploring! Nights out in Brum are never disappointing, from the famous Broad Street to other amazing areas that you'll explore in freshers. Don't forget to try out the local "buz" that's going around town!

    Birmingham is a great city with a lot of things to do, day and night, so those who enjoy city life will absolutely love it here.

    Fantastic resources, teachers and support. Lots of good friends made in acommodation also. Only downside could be quality of acommodation compared to other BCU campuses.
