It was with cautious steps that I finally decided to apply for the Masters I had wanted to do since completing my undergraduate degree, an alarming 17 years ago. I have been working full time since then and although I’ve completed lots of Continuous Professional Development (CPD) and online courses, they didn’t provide me with the level of academia that leaps a person’s skills onto new career trajectories.
Deciding whether to study online or on campus was easy…I worked full time and decided that the travel time saved by doing the course online, rather than travelling to campus could be added to my overall study time. I started on the 3 year part time MSc in Carbon Management at the University of Edinburgh. Since starting the course, I haven’t looked back. The level of support I have received over the last year and a half has left me in no doubt; I am in no way disadvantaged by not going into class in person.
