- Meet Us
Our professional students are made up of nurses, midwives, paramedics and teachers. This year Sam Uppal, Vice President Education is dedicating time specifically to make sure that professional students know how to get engaged with the Students' Union and feel represented.
Professional courses have a different timetable to other Undergraduate Modular Students (UMS), often resulting in spending considerably less time on campus due to placements.
Keep in touch with Sam and what she's doing
Sam is here to represent you, as well as the other Sabbatical Officers.
If you're on campus, you can drop by to see her in the SU building or book an appointment with her at the SU Welcome Desk.
If you're on placement then you can keep track of what Sam is doing and stay in touch by 'friending' her on Facebook www.facebook.com/sam.uppal.vp
or emailing her on firstname.lastname@example.org
Professional Students' BBQ & Bar Welcome event
On Wednesday 12th September the Students' Union are holding a meet and greet welcome event specifically for all professional students. The event will start at 4pm after most lectures have finished but will go on late into the night. If you have other commitments call by to say hi to the Sabbs, or if you're living on campus why not make a night of it!
Further information will be made available through your lecturers and Sam during the induction talk she has with you.
Here are some top tips suggest by fellow professional students
“My top tip as a Nursing Student would definitely be to impliment effective time management to give your self enough free time to do the things you want to do.”
“My top tip for any nursing student (I am adult branch, but this would apply to all disciplines - mental health, child or midwifery). Don't buy any of the books before you start. They are awfully expensive and there are usually some available second hand and all the ones you really need are in the library or available online!”
"When on placement, treat it as if you were actually working there! Be punctual, smart, professional and use this time to become aquainted with what is and will be expected of you"
"Really get to know the people in your class it's worth it as you're going to be studying with them for the next few years- in primary teacher you do many things in groups so you will be working with everyone at some point or put on placement with them!"
"Tutors are their for help don't be afraid to approach them"
"stars are chosen by you for your help use them!"
