Re-learning how to study
A chance conversation with her line manager led Andrea Boyd back to study after a break of 20 years. Andrea, a Practice Development Occupational Therapist in NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde, took the leap with the University’s MSc Gerontology with Dementia Care as a way to progress her career.
“I felt like a rabbit in headlights at the start,” said Andrea (pictured below). “Postgraduate learning is quite different to what I experienced during my undergraduate degree.”
But the support of the lecturers and interaction with other students on the programme helped Andrea to become more comfortable with her return to study.
