I chose to study at Brunel University as I've heard a lot about it through friends and also all the student support offered by all the educators is very highly commendable.
I would really recommend anybody to study online as I feel as though it's really ideal in being able to do multiple things. So you can work as well as manage your family life and also achieve a higher education master's programme.
Brunel has helped me gain the necessary skills in public health and writing to be able to perform well in my current duties. I also had the privilege of participating in the READY program, where I gained hands-on experience in intervention development. I adored the coursework that Brunel offered. The content was 100% online, which allowed me to continue my education despite the difficulties that occurred during the COVID-19 pandemic. Also, I was able to publish my thesis at a renowned journal in Turkey! All of these achievements would not have been possible without Brunel.
It's helped me at my work to see the difference. To see the things that I've studied on course, it is actually helping me with my current job to make a decision of where I want to go."
I will advise people that when you are working fulltime, it is better to take the part time study because it gives you the flexibility to achieve both.
The course is very brilliant. The modules were so good. I realize that Brunel is the best place to go. Why? Because it is one of the best. I think it falls within the 40 universities in the UK that's one of the best in terms of research. My degree in Public Health and Health Promotion is actually the right place to be and the impact is going to be huge for the rest of the world. Now is the beginning of my journey into public and global health.
Dr Richard Ackon Eghan,
It was very self-paced, and the team that I was with, my group members, were so supportive. We always talked, we always had Zoom calls. Everyone would help with different things like proofreading papers. The emails were always responded to and if they didn’t have an answer, they would show me where to follow up. Ten out of ten, I definitely had the support that I needed.
Post-COVID, I think there’s less contact face-to-face and more online work. And this course helped me with my skills with computers and help build in some research. The course was accessible for me and and the tutors were brilliant.
I have thirteen years of experience in social work. After so many challenges in social work, I decided to change my career and try to do something in behaviour change. Especially with my course that I have just completed and graduated, it'll allow me to try and work with a lot of children with behaviour issues and adults with behaviour issues like alcohol issues or drugs. I look forward to trying to help them make positive changes in their lives.
