Student Profile(s)


"Having worked as a technical analyst for some time, I wanted a change in direction with a view to gaining a position as an IT architect. I didn't have any formal IT qualifications, so I chose to do the MSc in Information Systems at Kingston University on a part-time basis over three years.

"I was nervous to begin with, as I didn't have a first degree, but quickly overcame this because the staff and students were so helpful and friendly and the course was very well structured.

"I based my dissertation on a project I was doing at work, which involved the installation of a computer-based fax system that captures all inbound faxes arriving at customer service centres, and delivers these into a document repository / image and workflow system."

"I graduated in January 2006 with a distinction and subsequently applied for a consultancy role at the Royal Bank of Scotland. I obtained the position of infrastructure consultant and was promoted to a managerial grade. I believe the MSc helped me to get an interview, as the other five candidates had completed, or were in the process of completing, masters degrees.

"In addition to the academic qualification, I found that my levels of confidence rose substantially. This aspect of the MSc proved to be as important as the academic side of the degree."
