Progress your career with Leeds Met open day 5 March
The event, which runs from 5-7pm, on Tuesday 5 March will include: information on the postgraduate and professional course options available at the University, including research degree programmes and online study; informal one-to-one discussions with course leaders; specialist advice about issues such as finance and accommodation; a campus tour and the chance to talk to current postgraduate students at the University.
John Cafferty, a student on the MSc Project Management course and Project Manager for Network Rail, said: "After working for ten years in maintenance, I was keen to develop other areas of my career and this project management course was the right way to go. My company is now more project management led and I'm able to feed into this new way of working which has helped me to progress my career in this tough economic climate."
Joe Swan, Postgraduate Marketing Manager at Leeds Metropolitan, added: "Postgraduate study at Leeds Metropolitan is very flexible with courses running full-time, part-time, at weekends or online at a time and place that suits the student. The open evening aims to clarify options and help people to plan the next step in their career, whether this be career progression, changing to a new area of work, following personal interests or specialist research - even if they are not a graduate."
