Completing a clinical placement abroad through exchange

Some Nursing and Allied Health Profession courses offer students the opportunity to complete a clinical placement abroad, organised through our partner universities. These placements – typically 10 to 12 weeks long and at the start of the Level 3 year – give you the opportunity to gain specialist skills in professional healthcare environments outside of the UK.

Students whose course offers this option can apply to study abroad during Semester 1 of their Level 2 year.

Most UWE Bristol partner universities offer teaching in English and the majority of clinical placements provide English-speaking mentors.
