Student Profile

Laetitia Reboux

Graduated in 2020

I decided to enroll on an MSc in Quantity Surveying because I would like to change the course of my career and get the chance to work abroad.

I was a bit concerned my lack of experience in Quantity Surveying would make it challenging to find a job after graduating so I find the future more reassuring having armed with this degree.

Quantity surveyors are sought after across the world too so I decided to study on this programme and I do not regret it because, among other things, I enjoyed learning about the project and cost management side of the profession and I believe these are excellent transferable skills.

I found the support great. The support from the tutors was excellent, and even though I didn’t need wellbeing support, it was good to know that it was there and very clearly advertised to the student population.

I quite liked the independent aspect of online learning. I have always been a bit more comfortable with learning at my own pace so it was perfect for me. The tutors are monitoring the forum just as it needs to be in order for students to get fast answers to our questions.
