Social Work student Brittney

“I thought the course would be mainly lectures, but I’ve been surprised at the facilities we have for practising and role-playing what we’ve learnt. I’ve really enjoyed using the Better at Home training facilities, which is a simulated home environment for practising home visits and assessments. It’s very realistic, it actually feels like walking into someone’s house. We worked with real service users on a range of different scenarios – that was such useful preparation to get us ready for our placements.”

“I’m currently in my third year at Edge Hill studying Children’s Nursing and Social Work. I chose Edge Hill mainly due to the unique course, but also fell in love with the campus after visiting. Moving to a new place with brand new people was an amazing experience for me and I hope to help you understand more about university life whether that be social or academic.”
