Another of this years graduates is Claudia Assamoi. She said; “I have the satisfaction of attaining this qualification and also gain knowledge and skills instantly transferable to my workplace. The MA is not the traditional route of study , as you learn when you earn.

This qualification will also demonstrate my professional and personal development.
