The Health and Social Care course is a brilliant way to increase your understanding of a sector whilst homing in on your skills and interests to pinpoint the area you would like to work in in the future.
More about Dani
"I was unsure to which direct career path I wanted to take initially but was very certain I wanted it to be in this sector, so Health and Social Care was perfect due to being broad and flexible."
"The course has given me a broader knowledge base overall and has improved my confidence on building and how I deliver my skillset. I have better listening skills and I have found I am less nervous or worried when it comes to speaking in front of large or unfamiliar groups."
"I am a mature student with children and a part time job, so my experience is probably quite different to a typical student experience in terms of the social side etc, however I feel like I have had a positive experience so far and I do not feel my personal circumstances have impacted my study."
"I feel the staff are there for much more than lecturing or tutorials, I had a negative experience at the beginning of the pandemic which was not uni related but I was able to call on a lecturer I knew had experience in this area and they were happy to give me some advice and services to turn towards if required."
"I found the Covid-19 change difficult initially because I had two children at home who I was also meant to be trying to school alongside my assignments, however I felt the uni did everything they could to make the transition as easy as they could. I was happy to still complete the assignments and the year rather than having an assumed grade, stopping assignments or deferring the whole year."
"I still feel I can achieve the personal goals I set for myself. The lecturers and other staff have gone above and beyond to ensure the support is there or that further services are being signposted towards, whether it be financial, mental health support etc."
"My placement was a teaching and lecturing internship offered by the university, I was placed in a module of my choice (social policy), and I feel I was really encouraged and supported to do as much as I felt comfortable to do. I feel this is mainly where my confidence was built speaking in front of groups of people."
