Student Profile

Ben Humphrys

"The lecturers were fantastic, very easy to get along with and build rapport. Their door was always open for me if I ever needed help. They often went above and beyond of what is expected of them, and for that I am truly grateful.

For me, the independent project challenged me more than any other aspect of the course. I was having to juggle my full time job and completing my MSc, so naturally, this posed quite the challenge. My supervisor met with me on countless occasions and exchanged too many emails with me to even count. Without his selfless support and guidance, I would have more than struggled to secure the award of distinction I achieved.

A postgraduate degree develops your skill set and knowledge to a further extent than an undergraduate degree, which can only be a positive thing for your future career and development."
