Progress your career with Leeds Met open evening
The event, which runs from 5-7pm on Thursday 28 November, will offer: 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; and a campus tour.
Colin Tomlinson, MSc Construction Law & Dispute Resolution graduate and Legal Consultant at Tomlinson Associates Ltd, commented: "My course was a great opportunity to build contacts by meeting other people from the industry. In fact, I ended up employing two people from the course. It gave me a full understanding of the legal ramifications of construction law, which resulted in a high demand for my services, including a project for London 2012."
Jo Hendrickx, a MSc Responsible Tourism Management graduate working for Thomas Cook, added: "Studying and working full-time can be challenging, but I found that you get out what you put in. The networking opportunities had a big impact on my career, allowing me to take on new projects and helping me to get a job promotion."
Joe Swan, Postgraduate Marketing Manager at Leeds Metropolitan, said: "Postgraduate study at Leeds Metropolitan is very flexible with courses running full-time, part-time 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."
