Support for students

Berkshire Student Accommodation

Students studying a pre-registration nursing or midwifery course in Berkshire are advised to stay in local student accommodation.

80% of the course in the first year is based at our Berkshire Institute for Health in Reading, and the University of West London has an arrangement with local student housing providers that take into consideration students' budgets and preferences.

We advise students to apply as soon as possible as allocations will be made on a first come basis.
