Dawindar Kaur, BSc (Hons) Nursing graduate who studied her Teesside University degree through Malaysian partner Universiti Teknologi Mara (UiTM) made a special visit to the School of Health & Social Care in August.
Dawinder travelled to Teesside as part of a wider visit to the UK, and presented a commemorative plaque, which will be displayed in the School of Health & Social Care.
“The BSc (Hons) Nursing was my golden opportunity to pursue a career as a professional nurse. During my studies, I had access to learning technology such as Blackboard which was extremely useful as it gave me access to course materials whenever I needed them. I was also able to interact with fellow students and lecturers remotely using this platform. My study experience was very enjoyable with many lasting memories.
I was able to experience the warm hospitality of Teesside University when I visited the UK recently. It was great to meet with staff from the School of Health & Social Care and take a tour to see the industry-standard facilities and exciting campus developments, it was really worth the visit!”
Teesside University’s School of Health & Social Care has been collaborating with the Universiti Tecknologi Mara (UiTM) in Malaysia since 2003, to provide top-up degrees including BSc (Hons) Applied Rehabilitation (Physiotherapy), BSc (Hons) Applied Rehabilitation (Occupational Therapy) and BSc (Hons) Medical Imaging.
The two-year courses are offered to students who hold a diploma in their respective clinical area, providing an opportunity for students to advance their careers and support service development within their practice area in Malaysia.
Susy Cook, Associate Dean International in Teesside University’s School of Health & Social Care, commented: “Dawindar’s success in her studies and chosen field proves that the collaboration between Teesside University and UiTM is contributing towards creating worldwide opportunities.
We hope to continue to collaborate with Universiti Tecknologi Mara (UiTM) to bring further opportunities to dedicated and hard-working students like Dawindar.”
