Becoming a Master of Science

Over the gone by few weeks I have felt it’s not quite time to set myself a just discovered challenge.  Having adjusted to operating full time and getting to grips by everything my new job entails thoughts bring forth turned to the possibilities of postgraduate studies.  Obviously I be pleased with my job, so want to sustain on working and know I have power to juggle study, commuting and working, having effected this for three years when retraining.  But the postgrad minefield I am seizure baby step onto is throwing up everything sorts of challenges.  

There seems to be a good selection of courses serviceable to me, yet the ones I am ut~ interested in would involve moving building or taking a year out.  Neither of which I am wanting to do.  First up there is the MSc in Cancer Studies  at Oxford Brookes University.  Cancer biology and pharmacology had to subsist one of my favourite modules during my undergraduate studies and this Masters round at Oxford Brookes would definitely more distant my knowledge of this. But which benefit will this bring to my do ~-work?  Actually more than you be of opinion as one of the modules is Living with Cancer in Contemporary Society, looking at by what means cancer challenges personal identity, the cancer rove and survivorship. This would not alone aid me now in being a good in a higher degree health professional but in the in extent term, should I get to be a review radiographer.  There is moreover a Research Methods module,which of road instantly appeals to me.  So the sort of’s stopping me applying?  I live in Suffolk, not far from 250 miles away from Oxford and in the same manner with much as I love Oxford, I cannot pull up by the roots my family for a year, virtuous so that I can study for example sadly this is an attendance solely course.  

Next up in my favourite catamenia list is MSc in Clinical Research at University East Anglia.  A diminutive closer to home, virtually next means of approach to where I work, making it a practicable option when considering location tick boxes.  Also this path is funded by NIHR which power of choosing mean financially nothing will change.  Furthermore in that place is the option to study duty time, so effectively I am guessing that I could in continuance be clinical as well.  This choice definitely requires further investigation,  Meanwhile I order look at distance learning options, by postgrad courses in Radiotherapy and Oncology at Sheffield Hallam substance favoured by other radiographers in my division .  Any guidance or other suggestions are steadfastly welcomed.

Until next time, take care.



I topped away my water bottle, unloaded some of my array and told her that we started in various places 20 minutes later than I had planned.
