Keele University School of Nursing & Midwifery offers a unique experience for prospective Nurses and Midwives.  It is a well established School with highly rated NMC-approved programmes, which enjoy fantastic success rates and high retention rates, together with modern, purpose-built facilities in which to study. Our student intake numbers ensure that you will receive individual attention and, because of the relatively small numbers of students in each clinical speciality, you will get plenty of 'hands-on' experience with patients in a wide variety of settings. Students will also get the opportunity to work practically and theoretically with members of the wider healthcare profession throughout their programme of education.

Frequently Asked Questions

Please click here for clear and concise answers to our most frequently asked questions.


Pre-registration programmes require assessment of students’ theoretical knowledge (assessment of theory) and their practical ability (assessment of practice). Equal emphasis is placed on both these two elements of assessment and both must be successfully completed in each module to allow progression through the programme.

Practice Placement Experiences

Whilst registered on our pre-registration programmes you will experience learning opportunities during placements in local NHS, private and independent sector health care settings. In the final year of the Nursing & Midwifery programme students who have made satisfactory progress, may wish to undertake an elective clinical placement at another hospital within the United Kingdom or explore opportunities abroad.

Keele University has existing partnerships with a range of international partners. The School of Nursing & Midwifery has student exchange links with a wide variety of countries for example Australia, Canada, Spain, Sweden, Turkey and many more. Students will undertake a selection process to have this opportunity and if successful will have to self fund the costs involved, although travel bursaries may be available for some students to access.
