Graduation testimonials - Donna Daly


BA (Hons) Business and Management

Studying online has been the best thing to happen to me. I finished with a First Class Degree, gaining the same initials I would have got if I’d attended a campus. Plus the flexibility has enabled me to complete the degree within three years whilst keeping a full-time job. Sensational!

Although I was apprehensive prior to starting the degree (I was never an A* student) I quickly became familiar with the format and deadlines and actually start enjoyed the course. The way in which the course was broken into manageable pieces meant that I could study whilst still carrying out my full-time job and part-time evening job, sometimes studying two modules at a time. Also, the way in which seminars are presented across the internet, has always been a bonus as it removes the need to travel to a classroom.

Studying has not always been easy and sacrifices had to be made; weekend shopping, afternoons in the park and evening television were often exchanged for the completion of an essay. I also had to move house three times whilst studying, which was fun as long I kept an eye on where your laptop and text books were at all times.

All of that said, completing this degree has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. I have shown myself and others that I am capable of something really special and more over I gained a Distinction for every module completed bar one, which even now I still cannot believe. In addition to my academic achievement; I have also been able to contribute to some really important projects within my workplace, due to my new found knowledge of theories and practices. Managers and senior staff have approached me for guidance and support and this has been a real confidence booster.

I would encourage anybody to study for their degree online as it is so accessible, and the support provided is invaluable. I never believed that I could achieve at this level but now that I have, nothing can stop me or hold me back.
