The Department of Nursing at Oxford Brookes is proud to be part of the Oxford School of Nursing and Midwifery.

We provide the opportunity to study Adult, Children’s or Mental Health nursing, or a combination of two of these through our dual registration courses. Our undergraduate and postgraduate pre-registration courses lead to professionally recognised nursing qualifications enabling you to take your first steps towards a rewarding career in nursing.

Our students enjoy a diverse range of placements in internationally renowned hospitals and community settings, including Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, a world renowned centre of clinical excellence and one of the largest NHS teaching trusts in the UK.

For those further on in their career, we offer the Return to Practice course – a route back into nursing for those who would like to renew their registration; and through the Oxford Institute of Nursing, Midwifery and Allied Health Research we offer a Professional Doctorate in Nursing and various exciting PhD opportunities.

Student Experience

The student experience is essential for us, and we work in close partnership with students and local health care providers to ensure that the student is at the centre of our provision. We offer a very friendly and supportive environment in which to learn, and consistently receive very high satisfaction ratings for our student support and learning resources in student surveys and practice learning from our regulatory bodies.


We benefit from excellent collaborative working with leading local health care providers such as the Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust, Great Western Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and NHS Swindon.

We work closely with our clinical partners across a variety of settings to offer some of the best placement experiences you could wish for to enhance your learning experience throughout your studies. Many of these settings have world class reputations for their quality and innovation and are at the cutting edge of research and practice development.
