You will develop key skills with the help of our academics – who are amongst some of the world’s leading experts.

Gavin Wren (MSc Food Policy) found that this was more than just a course for him. He explains,“Before starting the course I was understandably nervous about the commitment. However, this course has exceeded my expectations in terms of personal fulfilment and engagement with the subject. I received exclusive time with academics which is a unique privilege and gave me a real insight into this subject.”

Gavin continues, “The course has helped me develop massively in many ways. It challenged me intellectually, as my undergraduate degree was design. Written academic work and the research skills that the course entails were a new area for me. I also learnt how to critically analyse and constructively question the ideas and dialogues of others. The level of knowledge I have attained in just 16 months is phenomenal.”

Tanzyla Khan Tareen (MSc Health Management) adds: “I never thought I could learn so much in such a short space of time. I have grown a lot as a person during my time at City whilst studying my bachelors degree, but since starting my masters, I have learned invaluable skills and advanced more professionally. My internship has taught me about the working world, and I am looking forward to starting my consultancy module as this will help me to develop further.”

Supporting you to achieve your career goals

City’s central London location means benefiting from our excellent links to industry through our campuses’ proximity to the financial district and other major London firms, and leveraging our partnerships with leading professionals across different sectors. This will provide you with the opportunity to gain experience from the best employers, grow your network and stay on track with the dynamics of the job market.

Izlin Kamarulbahrin, (MSc Energy and Environmental Technology and Economics), says: “After four years of studying my undergraduate degree and then going straight into the world of work, I suddenly realised that there was more to learn. So, I decided to stay in education a little bit longer. The economy is also growing fast, and we must be learning faster. I believe that completing a masters degree in a different subject area compared to my bachelors degree will give me better opportunities in the job market when I graduate.”

Islin continues, “I have met speakers with whom I connected professionally. It has also allowed me to keep myself up to date with what’s happening outside of City. I found that participating in group work and delivering presentations have helped me improve my skills, so I feel better prepared for the future.”

Vanessa Milchralm (MA Media and Communications) explains how studying at City has helped her: “The course helped me to have an in-depth understanding of contemporary issues, changes, and recent developments in media and communications.”
