Course: BSc (Hons) Adult Nursing

Hey, my name is Tiffany and I'm studying Adult Nursing at our smaller Peterborough campus. I started my degree last year (2019) after going through the clearing process.

ARU has always been my first choice university to attend since 2014, unfortunately I didn't make the cut back then and to be very honest, I don't think I was 100% ready. Fast forward to now, being in the second year of this degree, I am extremely glad I kept that choice. I have met so many wonderful people so far and I'm so grateful for my tutors and course leads who are happy to deal with my being an absolute stress head of a person.

My Motto: There is not a thing in this world that you cannot do once you put your mind to it 😊
