MA in Career Education, Information and Guidance in Higher Education, Centre for Lifelong Learning, The University of Warwick

"After working four years at the Career Center at the University of Oslo, I had a strong wish to develop my professional competencies and contribute to further development of our services in new ways. The lack of graduate training for career service positions in Norway made me look to UK and The University of Warwick. Having started my two first CEIGHE modules, I feel that I’m already getting what I was looking for: new knowledge of career theories, increased awareness of important policy issues and inspiration and ideas on how to enhance my own and my institution’s practice. The follow up from staff at Warwick has been excellent, and the meeting with UK career practitioners on the attendance based course very fruitful."

MA in Career Education, Information and Guidance in Higher Education, Centre for Lifelong Learning, The University of Warwick

"Having worked for several years in school leaver careers advice, I moved to a careers guidance role in Higher Education at the University of Exeter. I thought it would be an opportunity to gain a second careers qualification more relevant to my work with degree level students. Gaining the MA has been a combination of improving guidance and group work skills with the addition of a master's level dissertation researching Exeter graduate employability and related graduate recruiter policies.

Gaining the MA has given me a stronger practical and theoretical basis for my work with students employers and academics. It also contributes to my roles in AGCAS such as training staff new to guidance and acting as a mentor to others doing a careers based qualification. I have had excellent support and feedback from university tutors and the contact with my AGCAS colleagues and trainers is of great value."
