One would not normally associate the time-consuming commitment to academic studies at the end of a working day, assignment deadlines and exam pressure with ‘great fun’ and yet surprisingly that is the way I look back at my part-time degree years.
The subjects studied on the programme were interesting, the materials thought provoking, and every step along the way one was encouraged to probe a little deeper into matters rather than to simply accept them at face value. Everyone in my year had found the course challenging and rewarding, regardless of whether their motive for taking it was interest only, or the furtherance of their career.
The course has also been a great opportunity to participate in ‘traditional’ student activities, in my case making new friends and exploring the pubs of Buckingham! Overall, it has been a very enjoyable step on my way to gain professional qualifications.
