MSc Professional Software Development

Why did you choose your postgraduate course?

I was made aware of the course, quite by chance, by a member of the Computing faculty at Coleraine campus and never looked back. The course was a swift introduction to many of the different technologies I now use and have expanded upon since securing full time employment with an IT company here in Northern Ireland. At times the content did prove challenging, but staff were always very good at helping to ensure understanding when asked. I now look back fondly on my experience and have a great job with a great atmosphere, all thanks to Ulster University and this course.

What advice would you give someone considering postgraduate study?

I would say don’t be afraid of postgrad study. Before, I wouldn’t have dreamed of ever going back to university, but I’m so glad I did as it has really opened doors for me. If you are serious about a career change and something that is very interesting and relevant, giving our move to a more digital economy, this course is fantastic and Ulster University is a great institution to prepare you for that change in direction.
