I chose the University of Essex Online because it’s a well-known educational organisation with a high student satisfaction rate and huge variety of educational programmes.

I chose the online format of education because it was highly convenient and affordable for me as an international student. I had a full-time job and other commitments, so it was impossible for me to leave my work and study on campus. 

I planned to write a dissertation and achieve a Masters degree right from graduation at the regional state university in 2007, but following my internships, work duties didn’t allow me to continue my education and I started working in the hospital as a regular clinician.  

When my sister found this opportunity to study online, I was in professional burnout, so the possibility of getting a degree and changing my career helped me out. I could afford an online format and moreover, I got a scholarship from the University of Essex.  

I chose the University of Essex Online because it’s a well-known educational organisation with a high student satisfaction rate and huge variety of educational programmes. A high-quality education, along with the affordable international fees and convenient payment plan, made the University of Essex Online stand out from other universities.

I consider the philosophy of science as the most important part of my study. The tutors provided me with a deep philosophical understanding of science and its tremendous role in the foundations of research and evidence-based medicine.  

The Master of Public Health (MPH) isn’t just about mastering the standard subjects of a public health programme, but also about developing a critical mindset and a more profound view on the researched issue.  

I hope that Ill be able to work for the benefit of society as a public health practitioner and a research scientist. Ive already been offered the opportunity to publish my first article which was appreciated by a peer-reviewed journal. My long-term goals are to work in the United Nations Organisation or the World Health Organisation, as well as continuing my education with the University of Essex in order to obtain a doctoral degree in public health.

The flexibility of online education has been critical to my success as it allows me to smoothly blend my studies with my career responsibilities and personal goals.
