Inaugural Access and Healthcare Conference success in Eastbourne

On Wednesday 20 September, we welcomed over 70 students to the university’s first Health Sciences Access and Healthcare Conference at our Darley Road campus in Eastbourne.

Delivered through the university’s Compact Plus Programme, students from partner local colleges benefitted from talks about applying to university, personal statements and student finance.   Student ambassadors from a variety of healthcare courses also talked about the courses they were studying.

Student ambassadors from a variety of healthcare courses provided first hand iinsight into their courses.

Students took part in a range taster sessions convering  midwifery, nursing, podiatry, public health, occupational therapy and physiotherapy.  A student ambassador who studies Paramedic Practice was also on hand to answer questions about this course.

Lee Price, Deputy Head of School said: “This was an excellent careers day. It was great to see so many interested and engaged people wanting to discover about work in healthcare services and life at university. These courses and careers are so rewarding for individuals who want to play a valued and caring role in our society, and we are proud of our current students who ran the day in partnership with staff; they demonstrated pride and commitment in their courses and future professions.”
