Our Teaching

Students learning in a clinical skills teaching session.

We are committed to, and renowned for, excellence in teaching and research. Our teaching is in line with the philosophy of Cardiff University, being research-led.

Teaching has been assessed as ‘Excellent’ by government appointed panels and it continues to develop and update its teaching methods to ensure that graduates are well-equipped to respond effectively to meet the challenges of clinical practice in the 21st Century.

Cardiff School of Nursing and Midwifery Studies has an international reputation for its teaching; and offers a range of degree programmes at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. Students are taught in a research environment and benefit from interaction with researchers and clinicians who are working at the frontiers of knowledge in their areas of expertise. This allied with modern study facilities and the latest IT and clinical skills facilities combine to make the School of Nursing and Midwifery Studies a stimulating place in which to study. The quality of teaching on most of our Nursing & Midwifery courses has been independently assessed as “Excellent” by the Higher Education Funding Council for Wales.

The teaching methods employed within the School have an impact on students through their course. The School therefore endeavours to expose students to a variety of approaches. Methods employed may include lectures, questions and answers, experiential, problem-based learning, computer-assisted learning, case studies, demonstrations, film/videos, tutorials, small group work, clinical skills teaching and discussions.

The School has excellent study facilities – the ethos is to provide high quality education in an environment which is conducive to learning, while also allowing students to enjoy their time in Cardiff.
