Mark says…

“I came into research through a less traditional route and achieving the MRS Advanced Certificate helped me progress my career, allowing me to move internally from a data-led insights role into the Aimia research team. Doing this course has given me confidence in my own ability and increased my external credibility.

What I liked about studying with Research Academy was the structured learning process, access to lots of helpful materials, and the ability to lean on the experience of the tutors who know what the MRS wants. It was comforting to have a community of students to share ideas with via the seminars and on the online course forum.

Studying for the qualification alongside a busy work and family life was a challenge, and keeping up with the reading and the coursework was a conscious effort. However, thanks to the support and flexibility of the Research Academy staff and the excellent pre-exam materials made available online, I was successful and even managed a Merit in the exam.”
