“Completing a masters was always in the plan and something I dreamed of achieving academically. Progressing in my current career path and improving my employment prospects were always top priorities for me personally. However, with such a golden opportunity to work at a prestigious firm, I could not make the move to leave my job especially knowing how much the firm invested in me and the endless opportunities it was providing. The programme at Heriot Watt ticked all the boxes.” Chantelle Micallef
