"I have worked in several nursing roles in India and the UK. Currently, I work as a staff nurse in NHS Scotland and I was looking to do something different within the health sector.

I came across the area of health informatics and decided to pursue a postgraduate degree course. However, as most courses were for 1 year, they were not suitable for me with a full-time job and family. I chose the health informatics programme at Swansea University as it is very flexible, allowing me to do a part time programme at my own pace.

This course content is of high quality and has really pushed me and enabled me to understand more about the health informatics aspects at my work place. Lecturers are very friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating. It’s ideal for busy working people.,

Having thoroughly enjoyed the course so far, I am just finishing my last taught module and I am looking forward to beginning my dissertation!"
