You attend a lot of lectures, and are in University from 10am to 4pm. The lectures are a big mix of powerpoint work and working with other students in teams. At first you are in 4-5 days a week, but eventually a lot of the lectures become optional, so most people don't attend them. Placements are pot-luck. Community placements are Monday-Friday 9-5. Ward placements are usually 7.30am-8.30pm 3 days a week.
The content of the course isn't the best in some modules, it is very unspecific and this makes the assignment work hard. A-level students will struggle more than others.
There are assignments due in January, when you are on the middle of your clinical placement, only two assignments. And there are assignments and an exam due in April. Some assignments are more difficult than others. I would recommend not leaving them until the week before as most people panic and fail. You also have two complete 3 types of practical work whilst on placement in order to pass the course. These are about your clinical skills.
Feedback varies from tutor to tutor, some are fantastic at giving feedback on assignments, others aren't very interested and mark work very simply with no critical feedback.
Course specific facilities are okay, there are classes which have clinical related material and the library has plenty of books to help assignment work.
