I set out to earn a living instead of studying, but despite this choice I always wanted to fulfil my ambition to have a qualification.

I set about furthering my education, to advance my business understanding and enrich my life skills; all from the comfort of my home. That’s why I chose to study BA (Hons) Business and Management with the University of Essex Online.

My new-found knowledge and confidence have improved my career over the past four years, teaching me the ‘corporate speak’ and I feel qualified to belong to the corporate world.

My final objective on my personal development plan was for my daughter to look up to me and see me as a good example of a working mother with a growing career. Having my family at my graduation filled me with pride.

Working full time and studying online is the only option that allows you to flawlessly pursue all your career goals and study in the meantime, not being tied to one place and scheduled classes.

The support of tutors and dedicated teams, a well-structured curriculum, enriching student learning experience and a comprehensive virtual learning environment (VLE) made it feel no less than an on-campus degree.
