What Our Students Say
Deirdre Collins | Specialist Certificate in Health Promotion (Oral Health)
Having spent many years as dental nurse and receptionist I needed a course to strengthen my knowledge base. The Specialist Certificate in Oral Health Promotion provided me with the platform to further my career. Being a part time course was attractive and I thoroughly enjoyed the challenge of self directed learning. Workshops, debates and essays provided variety and excellent support was just an e-mail away.
