HEAR FROM OUR STUDENTS
Student blog | How to prepare for postgraduate study
"Before I started my postgraduate studies, I found it best to split my ‘to-do’ list into 2 sections; mental preparations and physical preparations. Seeing this division meant I was able to focus on key areas of improvement, and most importantly that I didn’t overwhelm myself in the process."
Student blog | How my master's has helped my personal and professional development
"If you work hard, challenge yourself and engage with the degree’s process throughout, whether that's full or part time, you will certainly look back on a great amount of both professional and personal development on completion of your degree."
