BSc (Hons) Health Studies (top up) graduate 2014.
Jane’s study journey began with a Foundation degree in Health and Social Care, which she completed at a partner college in 2012.
Upon completion, she decided that the BSc (Hons) Health Studies (top-up) degree offered by the University of Wolverhampton was the ideal route for her to achieve her ambitions.
“This was the best thing I ever did. I was working within a public health role at the time and was able to use my assignments to inform my practice and learn new and interesting ways to deliver services. I learnt of a whole new world how to help people and deliver interventions to people who lived in Wolverhampton.”
“As a mature student, I had to plan my studies around work and family. It was great to be able to ask questions via the course online “cafés” at all hours of the day and night, where another student or member of the module team would answer me in a timely manner.”
“Many of the lecturers have worked and are still working within a health arena. This meant they understood the pressures I was under. Their knowledge helped me identify appropriate topics for my assignments that would assist me in my work.”
“Due to the brilliant support of my project supervisor, I completed a project regarding obesity in children in Wolverhampton, which was forwarded to the City of Wolverhampton Public Health Team.”
“After gaining promotion during my third year and finishing the degree, I took a year away from studying to assess my options and see how I wanted to move forward. A post was advertised at the University for a Graduate Teaching Assistant.”
“I am now a fully qualified teacher for post compulsory education after undertaking my PCGE and am supporting first year Health Studies and Public Health students in their studies. I don’t know what the future holds, but I know that the support I received from my lecturers will stand me in good stead in whatever I go on to do. “
A variety of careers in health are available. Past students have used the award to consolidate their professional role and gain promotion in the NHS, or move into the wider health field.
