As a student at UEA, youâll study aspects of mental health nursing from core nursing skills right the way through to specialist areas such as working in forensic settings, with children, and with people who have dementia.
Split 50/50 between academic theory and hands-on practice, our three-year course will see you undertake a range of placements in care homes, the community, hospitals and specialist care units. You will study alongside other healthcare students, giving you a greater insight into the responsibilities and roles of other healthcare professions. So youâll graduate fully-equipped with the skills and experience youâll need for a career working with people with complex mental health problems.
With the NHS Constitution at its core, our Mental Health Nursing degree provides rigorous training, fantastic placement opportunities and is fully approved by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC).
**Highlights of Mental Health Nursing at UEA**
- A wide range of placements including community settings, care homes, hospitals and specialist care units
- Regular group work with other healthcare students to help develop teamwork skills
- Combine 50% theory with 50% practice, and link the two with enquiry-based learning
- A highly supportive culture
Our Mental Health Nursing degree features two academic modules and clinical placements in each of its three years. Our learning programme combines small group teaching, lectures and self-directed study, scheduled between 9am and 7pm. Clinical practice placements, however, are designed to reflect the typical working patterns of a qualified nurse, and will include a minimum of 75 hours on night duty.
You will be allocated to placements in a wide variety of settings, where you will be able to use and develop your skills and knowledge in a clinical environment under professional supervision. Youâll work closely with service users of all ages and their families. Due to the nature of healthcare environments, youâll also experience 24hr and 7-day-week work cycles.
By the end of your course you will have completed the number of assessed placement hours required by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) for professional registration.

The facilities on campus range from the library to the bar and from shops to accommodation which means that it is possible to live on campus without venturing away but at the same time the city of Norwich is a lovely place to explore. The university had the largest natural environment in the UK which includes a lake and woodlands which are relaxing to explore.

The course itself has been so interesting that I can't wait until the second year when the content looks even more fascinating. The environment is welcoming. All services you would ever need can be found around campus and their opening times are amazing - especially in a bind! The library is open really late and it's super quiet so it's the perfect place to study, and the range of books they stock is remarkable!
