My MA prepared me enormously for employment, not necessarily in a tangible and vocational way, but in a developmental way. I learned a great deal about hard work and developed a style of writing and academic rigor that helped me get my place on a graduate scheme.

I also improved the way I think, which I believe comes across at interviews and in the working environment. MBL has an appeal across many areas and hence draws highly motivated students from a variety of backgrounds. I found that the course consisted of an excellent range of modules that appealed to my strengths but also challenged my knowledge base and pushed me into related, but always connected, other areas. The location, size and set-up of the course provides for a unique atmosphere, which I think will appeal to everyone in different ways. It is worth checking out!
