Our overall goal is to provide students with a student-centred, relevant, responsive and innovative learning experience. A key purpose of this strategy is to build on UL’s dynamically delivered undergraduate and postgraduate curricula, which are designed to realise the university’s vision of producing graduates who are ‘knowledgeable, proactive, creative, responsible, collaborative and articulate’. We will achieve this by continuing to engage with our partners in healthcare and through our commitment to developing structures to maximise our students’ learning as they prepare to fulfil the role of a registered nurse or midwife. We welcome the opportunity to develop a broader international focus, which will bring benefits to the learning experience of our students.

Our goal with respect to engaged learning is to provide students with a student-centred, relevant, responsive and innovative learning experience through:

  • Building a culture of support and respect for students.
  • The design and implement dynamically delivered curricula to meet the educational healthcare needs of the region.
  • Valuing and responding to the student voice.
  • Broadening our connection and engagement with community and increase our contribution to campus and community health and wellbeing.
  • Actively engaging and invest in creative advanced learning technologies.
  • Increase internationalisation within the department.
  • Support equality and representation through Athena SWAN principles.

The Department values fostering learning and engagement of both staff and students. To support staff UL’s Centre for Transformative Learning and the National Forum for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning in Higher Education offer a range of supports and resources.

This page provides some helpful resources and links, and we invite you to engage in dialogue with us to ensure we can capture all relevant supports. Check out some key services and supports and introduce students to any relevant resources or information. Also consider how such resources can be made available to staff and students on this site, Moodle, introduction module or advisor module.

The Department values students and their learning. We want to ensure that all students achieve their full potential. The relationship between students and staff is a particular strength of the Department and this is supported through staff and students working together in classes, tutorials and clinical skills labs.

Below you will find some helpful resources for students, and we invite you to engage in dialogue with us to ensure we can support you during your time here with us. Firstly, as you start on your journey check out some key services and supports. Watch out for supports from the Department such as an Introduction module which will be available on Moodle.

Starting out – some useful student links

Now as you get past the introduction, become familiar with additional supports and resources. All items here on this webpage may be relevant at different times for you on your journey but it's important that you become familiar, stay engaged and know which resource/support you require. Throughout your time on your programme, you will have an academic advisor and there will be an Advisor module on Moodle for you starting in semester one year one.
