Student Profile

David McManus

The material is delivered really well and the staff were excellent. The MSc was a part of a career change for me so I was also worried about finding work but I have already found a job in the area of mental health and I am enjoying it much more than my previous line of work. I plan now to go on and achieve chartered psychologist status in clinical psychology.
