Arc Systems Information

Arc is a company which provides a number of placement systems used by the university, our students and our placement providers to manage and administer our nursing, midwifery, ODP, OT, physiotherapy, social work and education placements. Students and placement providers interact with our Arc systems through purpose-built web-based interfaces; PEP is the primary web-based system, but it is also complemented by Arc Audit, Arc's Social Work Portal and Arc Web, used by our students to access their placement information. Further information about the various systems and how they are accessed can be found below.




Accessing Arc Web - information for students

Arc Web is a web-based system that enables students to obtain details about their placement allocations and evaluate their placements online. Students can gain access to the system via the Student Portal. Full guidance can be found in the Arc Web Student User Guide - links to the programme-specific guides can be found below:

Nursing, Midwifery & OPD - click here to access guide

Students will receive an initial email advising them to log-in to the system for the first time to obtain details of their forthcoming placement allocation. In order to access details of the next placement allocation, students will need to complete an online evaluation of their current/last placement.  Once students have evaluated their current/last placement, Arc Web will automatically allow them to view details of their forthcoming placement allocation.
