Mental Health Nursing, BSc Hons (Degree Apprenticeship)

Our mental health nursing degree apprenticeship offers a combination of practice-based and academic learning to boost your skills and knowledge in the nursing profession.

Our pre-registration Mental Health Nursing Apprenticeship Degree provides you with the knowledge, skills and confidence to work as a Registered Nurse as part of a team. You will train to work in a variety of hospital, community and primary care settings with individuals and their families affected by mental health problems.

As a mental health nurse, you may specialise in drug and alcohol misuse, working with offenders or working with the elderly mentally ill.

We offer apprentices a wide range of training opportunities and have an excellent reputation for delivering health and social care education.

The course leads to a bachelor's degree (BSc Hons) over either three or four years of study at university and in the workplace. Please note that the 3-year course is full-time throughout the course. The four-year course is full-time in years one and two, part-time in years three and four.

Teaching

In a typical week learning takes place through a combination of:

Seminars and workshops enable you to discuss and develop your understanding of topics covered in lectures in smaller groups. You will also be able to meet your personal tutor. Timetabled learning may fall between 9am and 9pm depending on your courses and tutorials.

Class sizes

Class sizes vary by module. Lectures are normally attended by larger groups, and seminars/tutorials by smaller groups. This can vary more widely for modules that are shared between degrees. All students will have opportunities for one-to-one time with their tutors.

Throughout your apprenticeship, we will encourage you to learn independently with support from your lecturers and tutors to achieve your goals and broaden your knowledge through online learning and independent reading.

Overall workload

Typically your learning at university is through a combination of:

  • Lectures
  • Seminars to discuss and develop your understanding of lecture topics
  • One-to-one tutorials
  • Online learning through the university's virtual learning platform
  • Simulation in our clinical skills laboratories to practice your clinical and communication skills in a safe and supervised environment.

Assessment

Students are assessed through a combination of assessment methods depending on the modules chosen.

You can view how each module is assessed within our 'What you will study' section.

Each course has formal assessments which count towards your grade. Some courses may also include 'practice' assignments, which help you monitor progress and do not count towards your final grade.
