“Being a mature student I was slightly wary about being considered too old to join the BSc (Hons) Operating Department Practice (ODP) course, but any fears were swiftly swept away by the team at Edge Hill and my fellow students. I have never been made to feel anything other than an important part of a valuable group and it’s clear that education has no age barriers.

We all have something to offer and you will get out of this course exactly what you want if you are prepared to work. The support is certainly there and the rewards are amazing.

It’s definitely a course I’d recommend as the standards are so high and I had a brilliant experience. Although it is very demanding, the rewards far outweigh the physical and mental demands placed upon you and each stage of the course offered new challenges, all of which were very enjoyable.

As well as the high quality education on offer I found Edge Hill’s location to be close to a wide variety of hospitals, some specialising in their own field, giving students a really good opportunity to gain the experience and knowledge needed to work in a demanding theatre environment.

Because the course is of such a specialist nature I’m hoping it has given me the expertise to become successful as an autonomous practitioner and build on the extensive knowledge that I’ve already gained.”
