Not many people can say that they’ve got a degree in Sexual Health
India Henry shares the reasons why a degree in Sexual Health has been a good thing for her and how it led to a job as a Sexual Health Advisor. Her advice is not to underestimate the benefits of studying a degree in Sexual Health, especially one that’s as unique as ours.
“This University is the only place in the North West to offer the BSc (Hons) Sexual Health Studies undergraduate course which is why I came here to study.
"It’s also very close to my home in Manchester and it was important to me that I could stay at home and commute whilst studying.
"The main challenge I faced was balancing University life with study and I’d often end up focusing on one more than the other and have to deal with the repercussions. I’ve found a steady balance now and I can make sure that I find time for myself as well.
"I also enjoyed travel and study trips as part of my degree. Visiting Wales, Amsterdam and Kenya gave me a wider knowledge basis, that very few others in my profession have."
"It’s the reason why I was successful in getting a job as a Sexual Health Advisor, which is my biggest achievement after graduating. My goal now is to enjoy this role and to go travelling around the world, visiting different countries.
"My advice to students is not to underestimate the benefits of studying a degree in Sexual Health. Especially with a course like this, it’s unique. Not many people can say that they’ve got a degree in Sexual Health and, if it’s for you, keep going and never give up."
