It was a strange feeling this year when so many of my friends and former fellow students were all excited about receiving new course materials, being allocated to new tutors for their new modules and starting into a new course with great curiosity…and I? What did I do?…well I felt that all this seemed so, so far away already, but it has only been 1 year that I, too, was starting new modules at the beginning of a new year. This year though, it was a new job that I embarked on, my first job after my degree. The last weeks have been very busy and it is a real challenge to keep on top of things, but I am surviving and will get there in the end.
Being so busy, has meant however, that I had very little time to actually look into options for masters and funding. I did some research throughout the last months, and it is dawning more and more to me, that I will not be able to self-fund a master! the fees are just too expensive for me to handle, and so I will need to look into alternatives. I am still kind of hopeful to find some funding somewhere, but to date nothing has come up.
The master that I was currently looking at is the MSc Occupational Psychology at Birkbeck, London. They offer a distance learning opportunity and I have heard from students doing this course at the moment that they were very happy and satisfied with the overall procedure in the distance learning part.
