It’s definitely worthwhile.

Although you are online, when you come to Essex for graduation it really puts it into perspective what you’ve actually done. Dedicate the time to it – it’s not really something that you can just slot in. You have to really make it part of your everyday life.

Essex is a good university, and I know that you can do other online study options, but to have a degree with a respected university is what appealed to me. There were certain modules that I really enjoyed, like the Consumer Behaviour and Marketing Communications ones.

I already had a part-time job doing marketing for a furniture company so I’m going to go full-time with that. I’m also interested in doing a postgraduate degree and seeing what options are available.

Once I've completed the course and obtained my degree, I hope to use it to progress into senior leadership roles within the NHS and play a part in making a positive change to healthcare in our country.

I decided to study with the University of Essex Online due to the course content, employability prospects, flexible start dates and because alumni had nothing but good things to say.
