Michael's story

Following an undergraduate degree in Design and Technology with Education, Michael Rawsthorne lectured in Mechanical Engineering for a couple of years before returning to education to study for a Masters in Project Management.

"My postgraduate programme is really well linked to industry and I have gained a great deal from it. Although it has been challenging, the programme has been well planned to ensure that we have one assignment at a time and there is space between modules.

I particularly enjoyed the module which involved us working as a team, allocating specific roles and applying our learning in an industry context. It was great to use project management software and be marked on our performance as if we were in the workplace.

The support on offer at LJMU has been excellent. We have always had someone to turn to and there has been a very clear explanation of what was expected of us. Any queries I have had have been dealt with within 24 hours and assignments have been marked in 10 to 15 days. Our academic staff have been brilliant - they really couldn't have been any better.

If you are considering postgraduate study, John Moores is a great University and I would definitely advise you to consider it. Course costs are reasonable and the service provided is good. If I had it to do over again, I couldn't think of a single reason that would make me go elsewhere."
