I am definitely a better manager since I started the course.
This course is bringing me a lot of confidence in my workplace. Having a degree will be obviously beneficial from a career perspective, but from a personal perspective it is really useful to cultivate my critical capacity, and to seek out the bigger picture.
Writing the essays has been challenging for me as English is not my first language. I feel that I am only getting better and it is helping me to not only learn the subjects but also writing correctly.
It has been a personal challenge, life experience and enjoyable time of learning. I learn how to communicate better and coaching my staff for development.
I am definitely a better manager since I started the course. I feel that I work more efficiently and effectively. I plan my day better and now I use lots of the theories which I feel is applicable to my day-to-day work role.
Anglia Ruskin University has been very good, supportive and I felt that I could not do it without the support I had from my tutor.
I normally do my studies at weekends as I have a 5 year old daughter, husband and full time job. At weekends I tend to wake up early 5am and study until 8.30am just by the time my daughter gets up and evenings after putting her to bed.
It is tough but you need to find time and focus on your objectives as I see that I am only doing this for 3 years and time flies.
I would recommend this course to others. I feel that have I grown and I am more aware of what is going on in the outside world.
