“The Master’s course modules offered a great range of topics, from the grounded international relations theories that shaped the international relations discipline as a whole, to the modern roles of the UN and emerging forms of power that were shaping state relations.
The responsibility to manage your time and do the work was more rewarding, because you felt like the lecturers weren’t seeing you as students: they saw you as adults.
The ability to access such a huge array of online articles and journals was vital to the course, helping you access hard-to-find documents that were either core or key to your module. Being able to always see your timetable and coursework deadlines, and have course discussions about topics covered or assignments was always helpful.
Learning how to be time efficient is a huge bonus when in the working world, especially when working in a quick-paced office environment. You have to manage time efficiently to ensure that not only do you assist with all queries, but prioritise them in order of importance while still leaving time to complete other tasks.”
