Health Studies Students achieve outstanding results 7 January 2008

The Department of Health and Social Security is delighted to announce that students studying for a Diploma in Health Studies and students studying for the BSc in Health Studies at the DHSS Education and Training Centre have achieved excellent results.

Hon W E Teare MHK, Minister for Health and Social Security said,

“This is an outstanding achievement by both the students themselves and by the Health and Social Care Teaching Team at the DHSS Education and Training Centre. These results also go some way in showing that the Island’s Health Service’s will be in very good and capable hands for many years to come.”

Eight students graduated with BSc (Hons) in Health Studies of which three were successful in obtaining First class awards. This is a very high proportion of 38%, which, compared to the national average of 9%, is an outstanding achievement. A further one student obtained Upper Second Class degrees, three students achieved Lower Second Class degrees and one student achieved a Third Class degree.

The results were ratified by the Board of Examiners in line with the standards and regulations required of the Department. These standards are set by Manchester Metropolitan University. Participants on the Diploma and degree courses’ come from a variety of professional backgrounds and these courses are open to anyone working in the health and social care field who hold the required academic pre-requisites.

If anyone is interested in completing academic programmes of study with the DHSS Health and Social Care they are encouraged to contact John Struthers at DHSS Education and Training Centre at Keyll Darree, Braddan on 01624 642931.
