Student Profile

Matthew White (MSc graduate), Head of Planning & Programme Management, NHS Coastal West Sussex CCG

The MSc Leadership and Commissioning course helped me to make sense of many experiences I had in the workplace by grounding theories and ideas to practice and government policy. The course also provided a practical and flexible learning environment which allowed freedom to explore issues fully. The MSc has had a very positive impact on my career. The teaching and qualification are recognised and respected and students who make a commitment to the course will get a lot out of it.
