Student Profile(s)

Fiona Anthonypillai MSc, Endocrine Nurse (GB)

The PGDip in Endocrinology has exposed me to various endocrine conditions, clinical scenarios and conundrums that stretched my knowledge further and prompted further reading. The more I learnt the more I realised how complex the subject area is. I gained a lot of information from the course which has consolidated the knowledge I already had whilst introducing me to less common endocrine conditions.

Feedback from tutors was constructive and prompt and the admin team were extremely helpful. I thoroughly enjoyed the course and am now in the process of undertaking the MSc in endocrinology. I would definitely recommend this course to others.

The online course suited me well as, although it was quite intensive, the case discussions were extremely valuable with tutor guidance. This suited my style of learning as it was active participation rather than passive attendance at lectures. Collaborating the group report with other students and undertaking the individual reports ensured that the subject areas were well researched. As the course was totally online based, there was no face to face interaction with fellow students. However, this was overcome by liaising with each other through the daily discussions and providing support to each other through the messaging facility.


Dr Ranjit Unnikrishnan Ittianath, Consultant Diabetologist (IN)

It gives me great pleasure to write a few words about the Postgraduate Diploma in Endocrinology offered by the University of South Wales, in which I had the opportunity to participate as a student between September 2015 and August 2016.

I work as a Consultant Diabetologist at India’s largest diabetes speciality clinic, where I undertake training of postgraduates in addition to clinical work. As such, it is imperative that I update my knowledge of diabetes and endocrinology on a regular basis so as to provide the best possible services to my patients and students. This is what prompted me to undertake the Diploma in Endocrinology as part of the September 2015 intake.

I have had a most fruitful time pursuing the diploma over the past year. The Modules are well thought out and planned appropriately based on the available time. The clinical case problems are thought-provoking and helped stimulate useful discussions, which extended far beyond the expected time on many occasions! The tutors were most helpful and supportive and were always at hand to clear any doubts and questions as and when they arose. I found the website and learning platform most user-friendly, and technical help was immediately at hand on the (extremely rare) occasions that I needed it.

The PG Diploma team, right from the Course Director down to the backend support, were always available for assistance and any problems, technical or acade mic, were attended to promptly. After completion of the course, I feel that I am now able to approach endocrine cases from a different perspective. I am confident in performing the initial workup and management of many of these cases. I am also happy to state that as a result of the training obtained during the course of the Diploma, I was able to successfully pass the Speciality Certificate Examination in Endocrinology conducted by the Royal Colleges of Physicians of the UK in June 2016. I doubt whether I could have done so if were I not part of the Diploma.

I thank the entire team at PG Diploma in Endocrinology for a most enjoyable eleven months, and have no hesitation in recommending this course to any of my colleagues who wish to further their knowledge in this speciality.


Dr Mohamed Aly Elsherif MSc (QA)

Dr Elsherif is a practising endocrinologist in Dubai and wanted to formalise his knowledge by becoming certified in his specialty. At his Graduation Ceremony he explained why he chose Diploma MSc's MSc in Endocrinology: "I was recommended the course by a friend who had completed it and when I researched online the course looked very valuable. The fact I could complete the MSc in Endocrinology in 1 year made the course even more attractive."

Having not studied online before, Dr Elsherif initially found virtual learning strange and challenging to adapt to, but with the help of the Student Support Team, he quickly realised how useful it can be: "The Student Support Team played a key role in motivating me and showing me how learning online has some key benefits that make progressing your career alongside your job possible.”

Now Dr Elsherif in turn is more than happy to make the same recommendation as his friend: "As a doctor you are always learning, expanding your knowledge and upgrading your education, and this course's content and online nature is wonderful. Being able to learn alongside work is ideal as you can fit it around work schedules and implement what you're learning in clinic."
