Why Oxford is a great place to study this course
Oxfordshire is highly regarded for the quality of its mental health services and you will have the opportunity to work in the full range of hospital and community settings where people with mental health problems are supported or cared for.
Support for students studying Mental Health Nursing
There is a good range of support mechanisms for students, including:
- academic advisers, who will facilitate your academic development
- student support co-ordinators, who provide a drop-in service for questions about any aspect of student life, covering both academic and personal welfare.
The university’s support services include Upgrade, which provides advice on study skills such as planning and writing essays, assignments and dissertations, research, and preparing for exams. They also give advice on statistics and maths.
There is a dedicated Student Disability and Dyslexia Service, which provides support for students with disabilities including sensory and mobility impairments, dyslexia and other specific learning difficulties, mental health problems and medical conditions. The service's staff offer advice and support on a range of issues, including physical access, funding, alternative assessment arrangements and liaison with teaching staff to ensure that they are aware of your requirements.
We have excellent teaching facilities, including a 280-seat lecture theatre, fully networked computer rooms and dedicated clinical skills suites. Our simulation resources include a well-equipped movement laboratory.
We also have excellent library resources, accessible both through the web and through a range of locally based facilities on university and NHS sites.
From academic advisers and support co-ordinators to specialist subject librarians and other learning support staff, we want to ensure that you get the best out of your studies.
We want your time at Brookes to be as enjoyable and successful as possible. That's why we provide all the facilities you need to be relaxed, happy and healthy throughout your studies.
