Learning Disability Nursing BSc(Hons): What our students say

Student profiles

Don't just take our word for it – here's what students say about what it's like to study at Kingston University.

Lydia Loughran

Name: Lydia Loughran
Course: Learning Disability Nursing BSc(Hons)

"Throughout my course I've received fantastic teaching and have experienced a broad range of placements which have really supported my learning: from community teams and respite units, to specialist epilepsy centres and even a placement in Australia!

My lecturers and placement mentors have helped me reach potential I didn't even know I had, which I am so grateful for. I've met so many inspirational people who have helped prepare me for work as a qualified nurse, who have inspired me to continue improving the lives of people with learning disabilities through safe and effective person-centred care. I was even shortlisted for Student Nurse of the Year for Learning Disabilities at the Student Nursing Times Awards, which was an incredible honour.

Before starting university, I had wanted to move to London and since Kingston University was recommended to me by a friend, I decided to apply. It's the best decision I've ever made!"

 

Name: Lee Butler
Course: Learning Disability Nursing BSc(Hons)

"I chose this field because I want to help some of the most vulnerable people in society, especially in the learning disability population, as they face many challenges in their life. I worked as a healthcare assistant in a learning disability respite before commencing on the course. I love the fun and joy you see when you make a positive difference to someone with a learning disability and the changes you can actually make in their life.

I really enjoyed the skills sessions at Kingston and St George's; working with service users that came in to support our learning while we were students. We could practice with them and they gave us feedback on our skills.

In my third year, I got to complete university placement at a charity in Bulgaria, which helped children who had come out of institutional care to be able to have normal lives again. It was a great experience, as we would see the difference we made to their lives."
