Student Profile(s)

Stuart Jaques

I've found my MSc in Veterinary Epidemiology and Public Health studies reintegrated my knowledge; filling in certain gaps and enhancing my skill set substantially.

I'm more confident in my own ability, particularly having sharpened my critical abilities and written skills. Further unexpected bonuses have included the appreciation of the economics of world agricultural trade, alternative world farm systems and tools to improve communication with farmers and the public.

Would I recommend distance learning? Absolutely, particularly as you can take one or two modules initially and decide later whether the full MSc is for you – just make sure you don't go three or more days without any study unless pre-planned. It’s hard to catch up once you're behind!
