When I started on the programme I was a Specialist Registrar on the West Midlands Gastroenterology rotational training programme, and am now a Consultant Gastroenterologist with an interest in clinical nutrition in the Dudley Group of Hospitals.
My interest in nutrition was sparked when working for a local gastroenterology consultant who managed a large home parenteral nutrition service, and furthered by observing nutritional challenges with in-patient care. This course is, I believe, ideal for any professional dealing with nutritional issues.
Whilst there are other gastroenterology registrars on the course, students come from all varieties
of backgrounds, for example, dietitians, GPs, pharmacists, dentists, nutritionists and others. With such a wide mix of backgrounds, discussions in seminars and lecturers (as well as socially) are
The modules cover a wide range of issues of nutrition in health and disease, providing a wellbalanced, scientific and pragmatic view. Every module attracts both national and international experts to share their knowledge.
Whilst the amount of work is considerable, it is this, the slick administration, enthusiasm of
the tutors and lecturers, support of the course organisers and the speakers’ standing in their fields that earns this course, and the awards/degrees, such a high reputation.
“Although the demands on my time and energy were challenging, I received unbeatable support from the team at Surrey.”
Sarah, a Practice Development Midwife with 15 years’ experience as a qualified nurse and 11 years’ experience as a qualified midwife, explains how a Masters from the University of Surrey has boosted her career prospects.
“I wanted a course that would enable me to consolidate my previous experience and give me the qualification I needed for career progression. I chose the University of Surrey because it offers higher education as part of a contract with local Trusts. I was also looking to study at a university that could rival others at a national and even an international level.
The most challenging aspect of the course was juggling my academic work, working for the Trust and family life. The impact of studying for a Masters on family life can never be underestimated, so time management is key. For me, this often meant studying in the evening, which after a long day at work was gruelling.
Although the demands on my time and energy were challenging, I received unbeatable support from the team at Surrey. The emphasis wasn’t on taking away my challenges, but providing me with guidance so I could find a path that enabled me to achieve my full potential.
Now I have completed the course, the sense of achievement I have is immeasurable. At Surrey, you’re encouraged to think outside the box and consider new ideas.
Based on the results of my Masters, I have been awarded a full-time funded PhD studentship at Surrey. It’s thanks to the experience I had during my Masters that I had the confidence to even apply.”
