Debbie is a single mother with a 7 year old son. She is a phenomenal student who manages to balance family commitments and her studies, as well as running a small legal firm based in Somerset. She previously worked for Natwest Bank for 18 years and decided to study online with Coventry University College (CUC) in order to cement the skills and experience she has gained over the last few years while managing her own business.
We asked Debbie a few questions about the course to see how she was progressing and what motivated her to start.
Why did you choose the BA Management and Leadership course?
I have managed and lead a team for many years and I want to bring in fresh ideas and learn to be more productive, both in myself and with the team.
Why did you choose CUC online?
It fitted in with my full-time work as a mother and Paralegal. I could base University reading and work around my already busy lifestyle and make the commitment to ensuring I succeeded.
How did you find the application and recruitment process?
Cath (a CUC Online Student Support Advisor) was extremely understanding, honest with her answers and helped me through the process.
How are you finding the course?
Very challenging but well worth the hard work and effort. Butterflies still apparent when waiting for results!
What advice would you give to anybody considering studying online?
Don’t delay! Hard work and aspirations come to fruition. Make it work, believe in yourself and talk any concerns or doubts through. There is support there to help so use it.
What will having the qualification do for you?
Long term, I want to teach and give my experience to others wanting to be successful. Short term, I want to cement my prior learning and experience and learn even more!
