Occupational Psychology MSc graduate Rebecca Griffiths talks about her time at London Met.
What made you choose the course?
My original degree was in Computing and Accountancy, but both subjects left me feeling a little uninspired, so I decided to retrain. I chose to study MSc Occupational Psychology following completion of a conversion course in Psychology at London Met. While on the conversion course I became more and more excited about how I could apply my new knowledge of psychology to my existing work in the field of business; occupational psychology was a natural progression for me.
How has the course benefited your career since graduation?
The practical components of the degree and excellent teaching at the University gave me the skills and confidence to develop an exciting and successful career in the field. Throughout the course, I was frequently challenged but also supported in my growth and development.
Since graduating four years ago, I've had the opportunity to deliver consultancy in business transformation and change at such companies as PA Consulting, Bupa, SAP, AstraZeneca and Premier Foods, to name a few. I am now a freelance employee engagement advisor and content writer, combining my two passions of people development and writing.
Armed with a great qualification from London Met, I would recommend this fast-paced and challenging industry to anyone.
