Jenny Wiles – Flexible, Part-Time Learning at Northumbria University


My name is Jenny Wiles I’m studying a master’s degree part-time alongside working as well Because I work full time I was keen to do some further study but I was conscious that and a full time course wasn’t we’re going to be an option for me and so I was looking into distance learning and also, local opportunities and and I think I was really drawn to being able to study part-time at Northumbria because I felt that having the opportunity to actually come and have lectures and seminars with fellow students would be much better than being sitting in front of a computer for the whole time especially for me coming back into education after a bit of time out The support that we had initially in being able to use the library and use the online systems was was really brilliant and also because I’ve embarked on this course with the support of my employer I’ve also been able to use my work training budget to contribute the cost of the course as well I’m proud to be at Northumbria University Because it’s a local University, and it’s really embedded in The wider community so it’s not just focused on academic pursuits although obviously important But it is really trying to do things that improve things for Newcastle and for the North East as well
