Faculty of Health

The University is the largest provider of professional health education and training in the South West. As well as offering nursing courses based in Plymouth, we offer the options of studying in Truro or Exeter. This allows us to deliver excellent nurse education in an accessible location, as it enables students who are beyond the commuting distance to the Plymouth to enter onto select nursing programmes, without having to commit to long travel times. You will benefit from being part of a smaller cohort, which allows students to form a close-knit community.
Based on the site of the Royal Cornwall Hospital, Treliske, the Truro School of Nursing (Knowledge Spa) provides modern, high-quality facilities to ensure excellent delivery of health education and training.
Our nursing campus in Exeter: The Exeter School of Nursing
Based at InFocus, a short distance from the centre of Exeter, the Exeter School of Nursing provides modern facilities to ensure excellent delivery of health education and training.
