    STUDENT SATISFACTION RATINGS

    STUDENT NURSING IN EDINBURGH

    This college has a reputation for training young student nurses and so I would expect it to be effective in this field. It is also in my favourite city with a lot of great opportunities on offer. During my interview I got a feel for the uni and saw the facilities and felt it was suitable.


    Course Curriculum - 

    As it was a new curriculum and here we're a lot of things that still had not been figured it wasn't completely smooth. My year was the second year testing the new year higher and many resulted in not achieving grades that allow university access.

    REVIEW : EDINBURGH NAPIER UNIVERSITY !

    Once I went to visit this college with one of my cousins when I was there living with my relatives. I got attracted to the infrastructure and other facilities. I decided to stay there and pursue my bachelor's from here only. I applied to the university through UCAS by paying an application fee of £13.
