It’s been roughly a twelve year journey (I started my first module in November 1998) but I have finally completed my Master of Science (MSc) degree with the Open University. Strictly the “award date” for the qualification itself seems to be 31 July 2010, but the university have informed me that I have passed all the requirements and am eligible to book a place at a graduation ceremony.
It’s taken so long that I’m not quite sure what to do now. Perhaps some completely different study; perhaps look into the possibilities for a PhD; perhaps no study at all (!).
