Graduation celebration!

3rd May 2017

Everyone at Education for Health enjoyed one of their favourite days of the year on 28 April – Graduation Day!

All graduates of our MSc, BSc and Dip HE programmes were invited to celebrate their achievements with their friends, family, and the Education for Health team.
And we were thrilled to welcome them to our HQ and to beautiful St Mary’s Church in Warwick in this our 30th anniversary year, to mark the hard work and dedication that brought them to that point.

Each graduate able to attend on the day was celebrated in turn, sharing their story about their work, the learning they had particularly enjoyed, and what the future may hold.

The graduates and their supporters also heard from Education for Health Chief Executive Monica Fletcher OBE, Chairman Dr Jonathan Shapiro and guest speakers Wendy Preston and Bev Bostock-Cox, both prominent in respiratory care and both MSc graduates of Education for Health.

New graduate Linda Hume, who was awarded a BSc (Hons) in Long-Term Conditions from The Open University said: “It was a very special day and one that reinforced for me the achievements we have all made and the impact this is having upon our clinical practice.”

Could you be an Education for Health graduate?

Our students come to us to study at a range of levels depending on their prior experience, and it is often surprising how much of that experience can be counted towards a qualification.

Our Programme Administration team are able to guide individuals towards the right level of study, give advice on what can be used as prior learning, and how to take the next steps. If you would like to find out more, visit http:/// or contact our team on

What does it take to be an Education for Health graduate?

Our graduates undertook programmes ranging from DipHE in Respiratory Practice or Long-Term Conditions, through BSc in Long-Term Conditions, Long-Term Conditions with a Respiratory focus, or with a Cardiovascular focus, or in Respiratory Practice, depending on their chosen pathways. We also had a number of MSc Respiratory Practice graduates and are proud to see this route growing steadily.

Students carry out their learning across a three to five year period, depending on their pathway, while fitting their learning around their work and family lives – several graduates brought children born during their time studying with us to the ceremony and they were all very welcome!
