"Despite gaining a first class undergraduate degree in Geography from the University of Leeds, when first I applied for jobs I was constantly rejected because of having no prior experience.  I was caught in a vicious circle leading to disillusionment and a period of time when I did not know how I was going to gain the type of job I wanted.

When I learned about this Masters course and its experiential nature it immediately appealed as it offered an opportunity to gain the real-world experience I so badly needed and wanted.

After undertaking bespoke projects for bodies ranging from the UK cider industry, to a national insulation production facility, to a small Herefordshire Parish, I finished the programme armed with the skills, knowledge and experience that has enabled me to enter the world of professional work."
