Over the five years I was at university I became quite close with a number of my university lecturers and that has since continued Post graduation. They have been a massive help to me both whilst I was at university and after I have graduated. By completing the 5 year part time course I was working concurrently with studying and I believe that with the working and also studying at the same time both benefited each other.
My work experience and applicability of studies really helped there and the working knowledge really helped with my studies. I have continued to work alongside some of the lecturers on the university since I have graduated and it just really makes me feel good and still connected to the university.
