What our students say...

BTEC Health and Social Care

BTEC Level 3 health and social care student at Richmond upon Thames College London gained insight into a nursing career on her course

A career in nursing 

“I really enjoy my course and especially like the coursework as it allows me to explore the subject in more detail. I also really enjoyed my placement at a local day care centre where I helped provide care for people with dementia and mobility issues. It really opened my eyes to a possible career in nursing once I’ve finished university.”
