Student experience

"Working full-time, I would never be able to do a masters degree - but distance learning has made this possible, giving me the flexibility to study in the evenings and at weekends. It is not an "easy" option by any means but has been stimulating and challenging. The opportunity of attending in person to meet other students and staff was welcomed and made me feel part of the learning community again."
