Congratulations to Health Sciences students who graduated on Tuesday. Over 450 graduates from across the Faculty attended Winter Graduation ceremonies held at the Turner Sims.

Achievements included diplomas, post-graduate diplomas, foundation and bachelor degrees, masters and doctorates.

We were thrilled to learn that the graduates who spoke to our marketing team were incredibly complimentary about the support they received here and felt prepared for life in the work place as a health professional.

The ceremonies went very well and were enjoyed by graduates and their families, and staff took great pleasure sharing in the excitement of the occasion.

Our graduates join the growing alumni community of tens of thousands of Southampton graduates across the world. We wish them all a hugely successful future.

Dean Quelch, a graduate of BA Nursing in Mental Health, said: "I thoroughly enjoyed my time here from start to finish. I've learnt that I am capable of more than I thought I was and wish I had studied here years ago!"

Tracey Tembo, a graduate of Advanced Diploma in Mental Health Nursing, said: "I chose to come and study here because it is one of the top Universities for nursing in the UK.  My study skills tutor in particular was extremely supportive. We have a good relationship and I've done really well with the study skills she's given me."

Graduate of BA Nursing in Mental Health Kerry Weeks said: "I was seconded to Health Sciences from Southern Health who put me forward.  I've had a lot of support from the University. It's been an emotional rollercoaster but a great experience and I'd definitely recommend it to others if they have the opportunity."
