University of Nottingham
Who are we?
University of Nottingham is recognised as a world-class institution. 43,000 students study across campuses in the UK, China and Malaysia, with links with more than 300 universities around the world. The aim is to give students as many opportunities as possible to broaden horizons, to ensure graduates with an internationally recognised degree, and with the skills, experiences and global outlook that employers are looking for. The School of Health Sciences (SHS) is one of four Schools in the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences. Our mission is to provide excellent healthcare education and undertake outstanding research that inspires our students and staff to transform the health and well being of individuals and make an enlightened and valued contribution to society. The School offers undergraduate courses in nursing, midwifery, physiotherapy, and sport rehabilitation to around 1800 students annually. All undergraduate students have opportunity to undertake an overseas elective during their course and the school is committed to enabling as many healthcare students as possible to achieve this experience. For those unable to travel, we aim to bring internationalisation into their classroom and their practice.
Why we are participating in the project
The University of Nottingham School of Health Sciences recognise the need and benefit of having a common platform for the audit and quality assurance of clinical learning environments across Europe.

It will also significantly increase the number of cross-border placements in nursing & healthcare available.
