I’m sure all our degree students will agree; it has been rather an intense few weeks with regards to dissertations and professional projects! These self-driven pieces of work are generally considered to be the toughest thing that you will do at degree level and I just want to congratulate you all on what I thought was an amazing crop of projects this year. The quality of the ideas, application of critical analysis and professional reporting was very high indeed. Many of you have also demonstrated iron will and a cool head under great pressure in the face of really tough questioning from us.
Personally speaking, I have found your extended pieces of work to be really quite fascinating and thoroughly appreciate all your hard work. We also learn a lot from your project work and although exhausting, i’ve found it a rewarding an enriching process to be involved in your final assessments.
Most of you are probably glad it is all over… but take a moment as you celebrate the end of your course to reflect on the people you met, the things you learned and those that helped. If you can apply yourselves in work, future study and your lives beyond Reaseheath as well as you have demonstrated in these projects there is very little that will prevent you succeeding.
You should be immensely proud! We certainly are.
Well done to all!
Martin Anderson (…celebrating the end of the year with strong coffee and marking!)
