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.
