I was a project leader in the oil and gas industry, wanting to take my career to the next level.

Learning through an online programme provided me with the flexibility I needed to manage my work and family life. Studying in the evenings and at weekends worked well for me, but without the support and understanding of my wife and daughter, it could have been very difficult.

Summer holidays saw me sitting in air-conditioned rooms writing assignments while my family entertained themselves. I would say family ‘buy-in’ and support is crucial to succeed! However, while I’ve made sacrifices, I’ll definitely reap the rewards in the long term.
