This programme is suitable for those who have a Diploma in Higher Education and are a registered nurse or midwife who wishes to work in sexual health. The courses in this award cover practice areas such as contraception, sexual infections, cervical cytology, HIV and AIDS.

Those without a professional qualification can also access this award and pursue courses without a practical element. Courses without practice cover areas such as sexually transmitted infections, HIV and AIDS. These courses will give you 45 credits of options and will require you to do another 15 credit course from another department to obtain the remaining credits. The programme leader will assist you in your choice and make necessary arrangements for this.

These awards enable health professionals to respond to the changes recommended by the Department of Health and to initiate developments in their areas of practice. Health professionals may choose to do sexual health courses as 'stand alone' courses.

Courses are available in contraception (both foundation and advanced), in sexual infections and cervical cytology. These courses are offered in attendance mode.

The aims of the programme are:

  • To develop a knowledge base which will enable the student to select and apply appropriate knowledge to her/his practice in sexual health
  • To promote understanding of concepts related to sex, sexualities and sexual health, including the negative effects related to prejudice and stigma
  • To enhance professional accountability and ethical decision making within the inter-professional context.
