Teaching Methods

Each nurse setting has a clinical teacher/mentor who is responsible for planning the clinical period and the learning activities. She/he is responsible for the final evaluation/feedback and signing the documents related to the clinical placement.

The Department of Nursing at UCL and the international clinical placements have developed a box of different learning tools that students are offered to use.

Before arrival, the student will receive a scheduled programme for the whole exchange period.
