WE ARE ESSEX ONLINE

Paul Nicholson

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.

The University of Essex Online has offered and delivered on flexible learning. The course structures are easy to follow, and I can fit my study around both work and family life.

I have been able to use the modules I am learning in my real-life work experiences which is amazing and makes studying a lot easier!

After considering for a long time whether I should share part of my personal story openly, I have come to the conclusion that my struggles over the past years may motivate somebody.
