UWS was a university of choice for me – I’d explored a number of other options but the programme I chose, MSc Health Studies, fit with my own personal goals. The programme is suitable not only for graduates, but for people like me who already have extensive healthcare experience who wish to build on and enhance their knowledge and skills.
Every day I have experiences at UWS where I feel valued – there’s a personalised approach to learning and the University recognises my skills and knowledge. I give value to the University and the University adds value to my life.
