Examination and continuous assessment
The personal view‘From the personal point of view, there has been the satisfaction of proving to myself that the MSc qualification was within my capability. Educationally, the course opened doors to concepts of economics, management theory and practice, contract and law, and generated interests which will remain with me, I hope, for many years to come. My graduation is proof that Sheffield Hallam is worth considering!
Sheffield Hallam is a well respected university. I found that its teaching staff were keen to ensure that each student was given every opportunity and encouragement.
The research necessary for the completion of the dissertation has been of considerable use to the work with which I am now involved.’
Steven Rogerson, MSc Construction Management (part-time), Commercial Surveyor, Henry Boot Construction Limited
‘My studies have increased the depth and breadth of my knowledge and experience, developed my confidence and improved my ability to think. Being a student at Sheffield Hallam was hard work but well worth the effort.’
