A day in the life of a nursing and midwifery student
Learning Disability student Nurse - Sarah Kigozi
"I know the next couple of months can be a bit scary if you’re waiting on results and preparing for university but, trust me, this is an amazing place to be.
To begin with, I was nervous and worried that I might not fit in or know what I was doing. If this is how you’re feeling too, don’t worry! This is a fun, friendly university with great teaching and I hope to see you soon!"
Breakfast eaten, housemate out of the bathroom, teeth brushed and helmet on, I leave the house and cycle to Uni. I love seeing the city by bike; it’s a great way to travel cheaply - plus it’s environmentally friendly too!
First lecture of the day with a coffee to see me though. There are numerous coffee shops on site, whether you’re a Starbucks or Costa lover.
Lunchtime! The food is very tasty and great value at the Uni cafés.
Time to put on our uniforms. They took our sizing at enrolment so thankfully it fits perfectly!
Head to the Students’ Union bar, The Social Kitchen. We order a pizza to share while chatting about class and up-coming assignments.
Off to the library to get some work done before heading home.
Midwifery student - Jasmine Toynton
"My advice to new students is to relax and, more importantly, enjoy yourself! You’re going to have so much fun, meet friends for life and learn a lot. I hope to see you on campus soon!
Here’s a typical day of my life at Uni to give you an idea of what you can expect."
I leave the house and walk to my local train station to catch the train into Birmingham. The train is a great way to travel as you can relax and get some extra reading in before lectures.
First lecture of the day!
Break time! Visit Students’ Union bar, The Social Kitchen, to grab some great food and drink, and catch up with friends. It’s great value for money.
Today we have a practical session in the mock hospital ward. We get to practice how to take blood on model arms.
Off to the library to borrow some textbooks and get some work done before going home and out with friends later.
Go to my course mate’s halls to get ready for a night out. There are loads of places to go and I love how close everything is, as well as the cheap student nights out!
