As a new student we know you’ll be keen to start getting prepared and to support you on your journey to university we’re pleased to provide you with some further information from your programme team.

Programme Essentials

To find your Programme Essentials please go to the A-Z listing and find the link to your programme/s. Here you’ll find:

  • general information about your course
  • pre-reading suggestions
  • contact details for your programme team.
You are not expected to buy all the books on your reading list – most you will be able to borrow from the library when you arrive. But if there are some key texts you would like don’t forget to check out our bookshop who often offer the best deals.

Please note that if your programme includes any healthcare placement activity you’ll need to complete your placement planning form (attached to your Programme Essentials).

If you are studying a combined honours degree, please ensure you’re looking at both your Programme Essentials.

Not all courses have Programme Essentials, for example, if you are a partner college or on a part-time course. Don’t worry your Programme Team will be getting in contact with you directly with further information.
