Returning to study
I hadn't studied for 20 years so for me taking a masters was a massive step in to the unknown. The lecturers were a valuable resource to our learning as they provided support and guidance, as well as the encouragement to be creative.
The modules encouraged ideas on how to harness your entrepreneurial spirit and invested in the concept of business start-up can be accessed by everyone.
However, the extra-curricular activities were a godsend! Designed to complement the theoretical taught modules in the form of workshops, talks, mentoring programmes and guest speakers. These resources helped me to gain confidence and offered a practical element to the theory.
As we were the first Masters on the Entrepreneurship programme, we had the chance to have a say and an input into what goes into our modules and how they are taught, so that the proceeding students would benefit and so the course could evolve and grow. The ethos of the course was ‘innovation’, so new ideas were taken on board.
