(Student Profile)

Theresa Aisha Mebitaghan

Why did you choose to online distance learning?
As a working mum of two children under five years, the prospects of a regular classroom setting was a bit daunting and almost impossible. The choice of online distance worked out well and afforded me the opportunity to pursue a Masters in the course I have always wanted to study and also allow me be a mum to my kids.

How did the course fit in with your lifestyle?
Doing an online distance learning course fit very well into my lifestyle as I could carry on with my normal day to day activities and routine whilst studying.

Where did you do most of your studying?
90% of my studying was done at home. The Robert Gordon University has a well stocked online library that is accessible to all students, so studying at home was the ideal thing for me to do.

How easy was it to gain access to the materials and support needed?
It was very easy to gain access to materials via the online library and the support system in the university. The lecturers were very approachable and easily accessible, responding to any query in record time. I never felt lost or alone during my time of study.

What were the highlights of your course?
The highlight of my course was making new friends and we always share academic knowledge as well as life experiences.
