Testimonials and reviews 

Learning at Work has enabled me to gain a professional recognised qualification without forsaking my salary. 

Katie Raine | BaE Systems - PgC OHSM

I thoroughly enjoyed studying for my MSc in Occupational Health & Safety Management.  Completing the qualification not only fulfilled a lifelong ambition to study at this level, but it also enabled me to study a topic that needed to be understood within my organisation.  I can honestly say that my work based project enabled me to complete the best piece of work I have ever done throughout my health & safety career. 

Simon Hatson | Aquaterra Energy Limited - MSc Occupational Health and Safety Management

My qualification is crucial for the society where I am from, as the local population and businesses are not inherently safe and environmentally conscious. This education is giving an insight about how people’s safety attitude and awareness can be enhanced through a systematic approach. The most beneficial part of the support provided to me on my course was the encouragement from my tutor and overall University Learning Department who gave me confidence when I was unsure if I could succeed.

Nazgul Shamshetdinova | Fircroft Engineering Services Ltd - MSc Occupational Health, Safety and Environmental Management

I choose to study via Learning at Work because it gives me the opportunity to develop my skills at work whilst gaining a higher education qualification. I have found that the most beneficial part of the course so far has been the support from my work based partner and my university tutor, both of whom have provided guidance and feedback on areas which I could improve and develop my skills. Each of the projects I have chosen to complete are based around development of company equipment and procedures, with an aim to reduce cost to my company and our customers.
