There are three course commencement dates. Students can commence their studies in January, April/May (Advanced Diploma in HIV / AIDS and sexually transmitted infection ONLY) or September/October each year.

Unlike other colleges and universities, we have written our own detailed, yet easy to read study texts for our courses, thus making learning with us easy, interesting and satisfying.
We offer advice to our international students in their travel visa application process to enable them travel to the United Kingdom for their studies. The immigration rules require that international students in the U.K. must be involved in at least 15 hours of day-time studies each week, in order to continue to fulfill the immigration requirements. Thus, failure to meet these requirements could lead to deportation from the United Kingdom.

Reply #2 on: February 28 2010, 07:21 pm

This course aims to train individuals in all aspects of STI management and control. Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) are a global health issue as they are a major cause of morbidity worldwide, and recognised as facilitating the transmission of HIV infection. The World Development report 1993, 'Investing in Health' rated STIs, not including HIV infections, among the three top causes of healthy life years lost in women in developing countries. This course is run jointly by the School and University College London (UCL).

Graduates go into a broad range of communicable diseases/reproductive health posts. The modular nature of the course allows students to tailor the course to their own learning objectives.

By the end of this course students should be able to: demonstrate advanced knowledge and understanding of the microbiology, virology and immunology of STIs, including HIV; describe the laboratory methods used for diagnosing and monitoring STIs; demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the basic concepts of communicable disease epidemiology; identify and apply principles of good clinical practice in the care and treatment of patients with STIs, including HIV; communicate effectively with patients and professional colleagues on issues related to the care and treatment of people affected by STIs and HIV; demonstrate knowledge and understanding of different models of health care and evaluate their relative benefits and disadvantages in the field of STIs and HIV; critically assess different approaches to prevention and control of STIs and HIV in different populations, and plan, implement, manage and evaluate STI control programmes.

This one year course, at level 3 of the National Qualifications Framework (NQF), will equip students with knowledge, experience and skills to enable them to join in the fight against the widespread problem of HIV/AIDS infection.

The course is suitable for people either from the community or professional backgrounds.

Emphasis will be placed on active and student-centered learning, thus giving students the confidence and abilities to continue their learning journey after the completion of the course.

The first 4 modules will provide students with the knowledge needed about the serious and widespread problem of HIV/AIDS. Whilst the last module: ‘Health Promotion and Presentation Skills’ will enable students to develop, and practice the skills necessary to make an effective impact in the fight against the spread of HIV/AIDS infection. Students will develop their understanding of how computers can be used in researching and presenting information.

All students intending to study for a Diploma in HIV/AIDS and the Community at SCC will need to be able to demonstrate that they have prior learning experience to a minimum of NQF level 2 (GCSE’s or equivalent).

Students will be re-assessed upon arrival at the College and taking into account previously gained recognised qualifications, will be advised as to whether they are likely to be able to complete this course in one year. Some students may be more suitably placed on the Certificate in Health and Social Care Course ( level 3) prior to studying this subject.

Progression opportunities following this course will depend on the level of any additional qualifications held by the student. Successful students are encouraged either to continue their studies at a relevant higher education institution/ University or to apply their knowledge and skills to effecting change in a community environment.

South Chelsea College is developing a progression route for new and existing students through a Higher Diploma in Understanding, Control and Prevention of Infectious Disease at level 4 of the National Qualifications Framework (NQF). Students will be expected to demonstrate evidence of having achieved a relevant level 3 qualification before being admitted to the Higher Diploma Course.
