Education and Training

Undergraduate Nursing (Mental Health) BSc (Hons)

Good mental health is as important as good physical health, however one in four people will experience mental ill health at some point in their life. Working with people, their relatives and carers at what can be the most challenging and vulnerable times, mental health nurses use their communication, interpersonal and therapeutic skills to build trusting, positive and person-centred relationships.

On this course, you’ll develop the knowledge and skills to deliver compassionate and culturally informed mental health care in a diverse range of settings, including hospitals, people’s homes, schools, the community and secure services, working in partnership with other professionals to positively influence the mental health outcomes of the people you care for.

You’ll build your knowledge and skills of therapeutic interventions and the pharmacological management of disease, including the safe administration of medication.

You’ll learn and practise your clinical skills in a safe and controlled environment through teaching sessions in dedicated facilities, including clinical suites and replicated community settings, supported by digital health technologies.

Through shared learning opportunities and collaboration with students from related disciplines, you’ll develop your ability to appreciate the contribution other healthcare professionals make to people’s care and health outcomes. Service users and carers will also contribute to your learning through their lived experience of health and social care services.
