The distance learning programme at the School fulfils my needs, as I cannot commit to full-time on-campus study.
There are a number of Public Health challenges in my country. To deal with those problems you need well-trained people to address such issues. The MSc distance learning programme allows you to study and work at the same time. That gives you an opportunity to apply what you are learning directly to your work. At the moment I’m working in Malawi, but I also want to work in South Africa and other countries. Having the Master’s degree has given me an advantage – I’m able to compete globally for these positions.
I selected the School’s distance learning programme for my Master’s degree as it offered me the flexibility to continue developing my career while also gaining academic knowledge from a prestigious institution. I completed the programme over four years across three continents, often with limited access to the internet – few other academic programmes are that adaptable!
My degree has given me valuable skills in such varied fields as economic analysis, immunology, health services management, and epidemiology, all while allowing me to gain practical project management experience in my full-time job. I apply knowledge gained through my degree to my daily work.
