This MSc has helped me a lot in acquiring the job of my dreams in the Space Engineering environment

"I decided to subscribe to the Advanced Software Engineering MSc at the University of Leicester because it seemed to offer the best conditions in Europe for a business professional willing to improve their knowledge. It has been a great experience, due to the excellent online material and the constant support from the staff. This MSc has helped me a lot in acquiring the job of my dreams in the Space Engineering environment: I think that I will be forever grateful to the University of Leicester, and probably I will apply to a PhD as soon as possible!"

Monica - The Netherlands

Studying this MSc has enabled me to update my knowledge and has enhanced my abilities to carry out research and to analyse and apply existing frameworks and models.

I live in the Netherlands and currently work as a Software Consultant at The Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons.  Studying the Advanced Computer Science MSc has enabled me to update my knowledge and has enhanced my abilities to carry out research and to analyse and apply existing frameworks and models. In general the course has enabled me to look at software development in a broader and also deeper manner.  I chose the intensive study route, studying three modules per semester followed by the individual project, so it was absolutely crucial to dedicate all my leisure time to the course in order to keep to the schedule of readings and assignment submissions for each module.  I enjoyed the entire programme very much, especially the programming assignments for all the courses, and the individual project was a great learning experience.  The inclusion of lecture recordings to the course material made a world of difference and were really helpful.  I would definitely recommend this course to those who are looking for a distance learning masters that has high standards and is technically oriented.

Kennedy - South Africa

The MSc, whilst intensive, has allowed me to focus on my job since I have family and financial obligations

‘’I am a Zimbabwean living in South Africa for the past six years, and am currently studying SOA and BPM Integration using IBM and Oracle technologies. I am deeply humbled to be doing the Advanced Software Engineering MSc via distance learning because it has taught me a lot of practical scenarios in the industry, mostly in the Service Oriented Architecture and BPM space, as well as ontologies. The lectures that I particularly enjoyedLeicester.jpg were the SOA lectures which showed us exactly what was discussed in class, as well as the visuals and also the lecturer explanation.

The Blackboard site is managed and delivered with ease and allows us to see all the scheduled lectures. By having groups in some of the lectures it allowed me to interact with people across the globe, from Malta, Greece and London, so I have also made friends as well. The programme, whilst intensive, has allowed me to focus on my job since I have family and financial obligations, but also on my studies at my own time by replaying all the lectures from Blackboard. In addition, we used Google Hangout and Skype to discuss content, and this allowed the course to have a personal touch.’’
