"Changing careers and or educational pursuits is not an easy feat, especially when they are non-related, but this is what I decided to do in 2013, switch careers from Media and Communications to International Relations.
I perused the IR course offerings of the top 20 schools delivering Masters programme in the United Kingdom, but only the University of Bristol caught my attention.
The Gender and International Relations programme provides a perfect blend that develops you into the ultimate professional needed in today's dynamic and ever-changing international landscape.The degree combination, complemented by a wide array of courses to choose from, gives the student the ability to create a varied academic experience. You are thus equipped to assess global issues, through numerous lenses, empowering you with the ability to balance creative thinking, with critical thinking, so as to produce logical ideas, advice, and innovative solutions, to address same.
I consider the University of Bristol a well-rounded student-centred development institution. The lecturers are patient, caring, always willing to support, genuinely channelling you to reach your full potential."
