"I am so very grateful to all those involved in the awarding and funding of my scholarship. It has meant I have been able to continue down my desired career route, which might not have been possible without this support. I feel very lucky to have had this opportunity.

"At the outset of the course, I was dead-set on Educational Psychology. However, the MSc has made me think about other possible avenues including Clinical Psychology and even doing a Research PhD. Additionally, getting the opportunity to work with academics and researchers in the field is wonderful and offers up other areas of contact and opportunity.

"Getting to do this course has made a profound difference to my life and life choices so far. In fact, given that I need BPS accreditation (gained from doing this course) to become a trained psychologist, if I hadn't got onto the MSc I simply would not have been able to follow my preferred professional route."
