The University of Bradford has been ranked number one in the UK for undergraduate nursing and midwifery placement satisfaction.

The ranking is based on feedback from final-year students who completed the annual . This accomplishment follows our nursing and midwifery programmes achieving an overall satisfaction rating of between 94 – 100 per cent.

Practice placements enable students to learn and work in the contextual setting of a clinical practice.

Practice-based learning provides students with essential real life work experience, which helps them to prepare for a career in health and social care.

The University of Bradford works with local and regional NHS Trusts to provide placement opportunities for students.

Pam Bagley, Dean of the Faculty of Health Studies, said: “The data is sufficiently large to have allowed this analysis of nursing and midwifery against other programmes. We and our practice partners should feel extremely proud to have achieved this top performance in the UK.”
