The best laid plans of mice and men - MSc is off

Discussion in 'Jobseekers' started by supply slave, Jan 3, 2012.


  1. Yet more hopes and expectations dashed. MSc in Environmental Health requires a placement to complete a work portfolio to complete said degree. Following much research 60% of students fail to get a placement and so cannot complete MSc and so cannot work. Therefore I have had no option but to save my £5000 and withdraw. Back to the drawing board! Feeling pretty low again (although not as bad as last time). B*****d!

    Oh, so hopes dashed again, supplyslave![​IMG]
    Just one query, have you considered approaching your 'new employers' if they could provide a placement for you? I would have thought Environmental Health would be a high priority?
    One positive - your teacher training has taught you to 'do your research', so you know it's not worth pursuing unless you do find a placement and can save your money. Pity all those innocents who will be so disappointed and in debt!

    Its a good job you found out in time before you spent the £5000.
    Have you considered the Open University for ideas?

    Sent you a PM, the good thing about the link I gave you is that it will fit around working full/part time. :)

    Hope it helps!
