"I completed my MSc in Clinical Leadership on a part-time basis. The modules in the course solidified my learning experience and were extremely informative. I used the WBL (work-based learning) module to undertake a service improvement project in my workplace. I submitted an abstract on this work to the Euroanaesthesia conference, and was asked to present the poster at the 2015 conference in Berlin and the 2016 conference in London. Presenting at the conference was an incredible achievement, and I couldn't have done this without the knowledge I gained from the course, as well as the support given to me by my supervisors.

Completing the course as well as presenting my work at an international conference have really improved my self-confidence and helped establish myself as a growing leader. I've also been asked to present my completed work project at the BACCN (British Association of Critical Care Nurses) conference this year, and was nominated as a finalist of the Leadership Award category in the RCNi Nurse Awards 2016.

I'm really grateful to my course supervisors at Kingston University and St George's for all their encouragement and support. I wouldn't have been able to achieve important career milestones such as these were it not for the knowledge, experience and leadership skills that I gained by completing this course."
