Nursing Studies Ranked Number 1 in the UK

Nursing Studies have been ranked number 1 in the UK for the second year in a row by the Guardian University League Table!

We were so delighted to learn of our No.1 ranking for the second year in a row which reflects the commitment of colleagues in Nursing Studies to ensure our students are at the heart of a supportive, quality and enriched teaching and learning experience.

We offer a four year Bachelor of Nursing with Honours with registration as a Nurse (Adult branch). As one of the first universities to offer a nursing degree in the UK (since 1956), the University of Edinburgh has a long tradition of preparing graduate nurses.
