This type of Master’s qualification is unique in that it allows you to focus on your studies on wider aspects of human resource management rather that the traditional, expected elements. I had worked with some of the tutors before, so I was aware of their calibre. The programme was structured around work, being on a Friday, Saturday and Sunday every six to eight weeks, meaning that my time away from work was kept to a minimum. This was a great selling point.
Yes, the support was very good, particularly form the tutors. I think any other place of study would be hard pushed to compete with the tutors within the Professional Practice programme at Kent.
My employment prospects have improved vastly. Not just having a degree on my record, but the new skill set, confidence and proved competence are all benefits to studying this programme.
This degree allows for greater insight, personal reflection and the time to challenge yourself to complete a unique degree programme. It lends itself to each student focusing on their own practice and actually improving it by taking the time to reflect on excising practice based on reality, as well as theory and literature.
