“I chose to study MSc Sustainability, Health and Wellbeing to expand my level of expert knowledge in holistic therapies, alternative medicine, and health and wellness to unlock doors that might otherwise be closed to me. Also, the course is offered through distance learning, and while I believe that this type of course demands just as much effort and input as a traditional, get-up-and-go-to-lecture course, I found it to be more beneficial to be able to sit down and learn the same content whenever I wanted, as long as I met the course deadlines.

“I think one of the main drivers for me taking this course is the opportunity to increase my earning power. Additionally, I think it will give me the opportunity to progress through my field of work quicker especially in my areas of education and healthcare. I intend to use the knowledge and skills gained from this course in my current roles and hopefully to position myself when I graduate for a promotion."

"The course lecturers are very knowledgeable, organised, and informative. If you have a problem or you are struggling to understand an essay’s learning outcomes, they are there for you no matter what time of day"

“The best aspect of the course is its content; it is fascinating. The fact that you can write about whatever area of interest you have surrounding sustainability, health and wellbeing is fantastic. The lectures are really informal, well-organised and clearly presented. The course lecturers are very knowledgeable, organised, and informative. If you have a problem or you are struggling to understand an essay’s learning outcomes, they are there for you no matter what time of day. They will always answer any queries you have very promptly and will never fail to get back to you.

“Another great aspect is the course’s flexibility, meaning that my family, my job(s) and my hobbies have not been completely sidelined. It enables you to fit your studies in alongside everything else. Distance learning courses may easily be worked around other significant responsibilities in life, so you never have to choose between them.

“This course will far exceed your expectations, and it is part-time, so you have more flexibility. MSc Sustainability, Health and Wellbeing is the course to take if you want to advance your career and continue to grow professionally in your field.”
