Research Officer Kloe says…

“The team at the Research Academy was wholly supportive throughout my time studying to obtain the MRS Advanced Certificate. As someone with little exposure to traditional research practice, I found the coursework assignment especially challenging. I had little idea about how research was commissioned and what a proposal should look like. My personal tutor Mia noticed that I found this challenging, and proactively approached me with suggestions about how I could improve the design of the research outlined in my assignment. Having listened to her ideas, I reworked the assignment. This process of revisiting the work, with my tutor’s suggestions in mind, really helped to cement my understanding of the research design process. Thanks to the help from Mia and the rest of the Research Academy Team, I was able to obtain a Merit for the coursework component!

I thoroughly enjoyed studying with the Research Academy. The course content was diverse and well-delivered, and I felt fully supported at every turn. The course imparted essential technical knowledge which I will carry with me throughout my research career.”
