What better recommendation and how kind of you Cheryl to offer your support.

Professional practice, let alone studying on a professional course presents challenges. It is great to know there are a network of practitioners such as those who subscribe to JISC who can assist.

Good luck with your studies

Anne

Hi Anne,

I am almost at the end of my course at Leeds Met, and can honestly say I have enjoyed the experience, even though I am particularly stressed at the moment!

I am based near Hull and travel by train to Leeds, one of my friends on the course travels from Lincoln. What ever you decide I may be able to offer some support with your studies as we share a link via Dr Guest who is OHP for us.

Good luck with your search.

Regards

Cheryl

Hello Anne

It is difficult to comment about  courses other than my own as I don’t know their specific rules. However, the  general principles will be the same. Think of academic courses a bit like  going up an escalator in a three story building. Level 1,(also known as level  4) is the first floor and the equivalent of the first year of a university  degree. Level  2 (also known as 5)  is the second floor – second  year of a degree. The third year is level 3 (also known as 6).

The  diplomas of Warwick and Uni Glam are both excellent courses but they are  delivered at diploma level which is level 2(AKA level 5) the academic level of  the second year of a degree programme. The academic level does not relate to  how good courses are just what “floor” in the educational escalator they are  taught at. So the short answer is that it is unlikely that you will get  exemptions from a course delivered at level 3(6). However, entry to level 3  courses usually requires previous study at level 2 so the diploma would be  what would get you into the course; rather like A levels are the entry point  to a degree studied straight from school at the age of 18. Don’t be  disheartened as it does mean that you go straight to the third year of a  degree programme. When I first started teaching at the RCN academic credit  wasn’t given for having an RGN so those people had to do all three years of a  degree programme.

Although we have had students from Lincolnshire  registering on our programme (we have had students travel from Scotland,  Ireland and Wales before now) I suspect that the nearest course to you for  face to face teaching would be Leeds Met, give Becky a call. The alternative  is D/L at either University of West of Scotland or Robert Gordon University.  D/L doesn’t suit everyone – it requires a high level of self discipline but it  is great option for those who have that.

Anne

Hello Anne

Could you  just clarify for me if this applies if you also studied at Warwick Diploma  for the Diploma in OH, as I am planning to further my studies hopefully next  year & will be devastated if nothing can be be  accredited.

I am based in North Lincolnshire/South Humberside  & would ideally need to look for something more local, so sadly London  would be too far for me to travel. I have heard nothing but great things  about your course & remembering you lecturing us at Warwick a few years  ago.

Kind Regards

Hello Georgina

The diploma you have completed  at Uni Glam is taught at second year degree level - level 2 – (known in some  institutions as level5). All the SCPHN courses are currently taught at level  3 (AKA level 6) and therefore it is unlikely that you would be able to make  an APL claim as the levels are different. However, on the plus side, you  should find degree level OHN study easy  and you will be at a distinct  advantage. I have taught several students with the Warwick Diploma in OH and  having completed that course puts them at a distinct advantage.

Not  sure where in the country you are based. We are based near Waterloo and a  number of underground stations if you would be interested in studying with  us. If so please contact me off list on this email  address.

Hi,
 
I wonder if anyone could advise  me  the best route to take to obtain a OH degree. I have recently  obtained my OH  diploma at the university of Glamorgan and wonder if  I can APL what I have  already done and top up to go on and get a  degree.
 
I have found  out that the Robert Gordon  university do offer a long distance learning degree  but I cannot APL  any of my dip. Is this the case for all university's offering  the OH  degree course?
 
Thanks in   anticipation
 
Georgie
