Speaking about her time at Leeds Beckett, Nichole Roberts, Franchisee Owner of the Financial Management Centre and MSc Accounting and Finance graduate, commented: “The content of my course was diverse and challenging and I could pick the modules most relevant to my job. My qualification opened doors for me and I have been able to use the knowledge I learned at each stage of my career since.”
Chris Brady, Postgraduate Marketing Manager at Leeds Beckett, added: “It’s an exciting time to study at Leeds Beckett – the new government-backed postgraduate study loans apply to many of our Masters courses and will help make postgraduate study more accessible to more people.
“We have courses running full-time, part-time or online to suit the needs of students. Our Open Day is an opportunity for people to come along, meet our academic staff and plan their next steps, whether they want to progress their career, earn more money, change direction into a new area of work or simply follow a personal interest.”
