After completing my first degree, I was lucky enough to find a job quickly in my chosen sector – museums and the arts. I then moved into a range of wider public sector management roles. However I always planned to return to postgraduate study at some point if I could.
I chose this Programme as it was an area I'd always wanted to understand in more depth. The core modules provided an overview of how Scottish writing has developed since the 18th century and the option modules were directly relevant to the research questions in which I was particularly interested.
As a part-time mature student, I found the University environment very welcoming. Support was always available from my tutors when I needed it and the mix of perspectives and experience from other students was extremely stimulating.
Completing my Master’s Degree has given me a lot of personal satisfaction.
