Health Sciences postgraduate open evening a real hit

Published: 13 June 2013

Over 40 undergraduate students and a wide range of qualified health professionals attended a buzzing Health Sciences postgraduate open evening at the University of Southampton this week.

Nurses, health visitors and other practitioners from the Southern Health Trust, UHS and Portsmouth Hospital attended alongside the University's current undergraduate Health Sciences students and academics from across the Faculty to explore the many postgraduate opportunities on offer. 

The event began with a warm welcome by Associate Dean of Education, Rosalynd Jowett, followed by a lively presentation by the Faculty's Chair of Health Services Research, Professor Peter Griffiths, on his recently publicised ‘Failure to rescue' study.

An exhibition provided the opportunity for attendees to speak informally with programme leads, current postgraduate students, PhD students, employers and senior practitioners to explore the variety of programmes, funding and scholarship opportunities available.

Student nurses Emily Gallagher and Daniel Pitt-Willis agreed that it was a brilliant opportunity to meet with academics from across the Faculty and incredibly useful in helping them explore future academic pathways and plan for the next stage of their studies.

Health Sciences at Southampton brings together research and teaching in cancer, palliative and end-of-life care, active living and rehabilitation, and the organisation and delivery of care. This research is addressing some of the most challenging issues facing global healthcare systems and the quality of life of their patients.

More information about the postgraduate programmes offered can be found on the website.
