Studying with Leeds Beckett gives you access to diverse placement opportunities including Leeds Teaching Hospitals Trust and Leeds Community Healthcare Trust. These organisations offer work experience placements in a variety of settings including secondary and regional care units, community teams and GP practices. You can also apply for exciting projects such as working with the medical services at Leeds and Download Festivals, Headstart or the final year Community Scheme and focus on areas of personal interest in healthcare during the volunteering strand of the course.

We understand that full-time study does not suit everyone. That’s why we offer courses which give you the opportunity to decide where, when and how you can get involved in learning. Studying a distance learning course offers the convenience and flexibility to make education work for you. Whether you’d like to fit your studies around childcare, develop your skills while working or, quite simply, want to learn from the comfort of your own home, we can help you gain a qualification at a time and pace that suits your lifestyle.

Like our students on campus, you will have the same excellent teaching and learning resources, however you’ll find these online instead of in a lecture theatre. Not only are all the modules taught online, but you will also have access to an online community and more than 140,000 books and journals in our online library.

Placements

Placement locations and experiences will vary throughout the course but any additional travel or dual accommodation costs will be reimbursed by the NHS Business Services Authority (applies to UK students only). Students may also be eligible for a Child Dependants Allowance and Exceptional Support Funding dependent on their circumstances. Details of this NHS Learning Support Funding can be found here.

Adult Health and Mental Health Nursing placements are generally in West Yorkshire predominantly in the Leeds NHS Trusts, but some experiences may be offered in Harrogate or other North and East Yorkshire Trusts and Private Independent and Voluntary Organisations.

Other study-related expenses to consider: materials that you will need to complete your course such as books (the library stocks books from your module reading list and can order books from other locations for you if a copy isn’t available but you may wish to purchase copies for yourself); placement costs (these may include travel expenses and living costs); student visas (international students only); printing, photocopying and stationery (you will need to pay for multiple copies of your dissertation or final project to be printed and bound); events associated with your course such as field trips; study abroad opportunities (travel costs and accommodation, visas and immunisations). Other costs could include academic conferences (travel costs) and professional-body membership (where applicable). The costs you will need to cover for graduation will include gown hire and guest tickets, and optional extras such as professional photography.

You may prefer to have your own mobile phone/tablet (to access university online services) but you can book and borrow AV equipment through the media equipment service accessed online via the student hub and located in the library at each campus. Equipment includes: such as 360 Cameras, iPads, GoPros, MacBooks, portable data projectors, portable projection screens, flipchart stands, remote presenters, digital cameras and camcorders, SLR cameras, speakers, microphones, headphones, headsets, tripods, digital audio recorders and PC/laptops (a laptop loans service is provided on campus in social learning spaces and in the library on both campuses). Student laptops are also available from the laptop lockers located on the ground floor of the libraries.

This list is not exhaustive and costs will vary depending on the choices you make during your course. Any rental, travel or living costs are also in addition to your course fees.
