Orlagh Costello, a Reliability Engineer, graduated from The Open University with a Masters in Technology Management. 

Orlagh explains:

 “Through The Open University, I was able to complete my Masters over an eight-year period. I started by taking a more general module in project management, but over time I decided to specialise in more technical modules; all of which I was able to directly apply to my job. I’m lucky that I’ve found an area that’s developing in Ireland right now and that there are opportunities for further development in the future.

The Open University’s model of one-to-one support suited me a lot better than a traditional university would, with everything I needed available online. The tutors responded quickly to all of my queries – even questions I thought were a bit daft! 

While I was studying, I moved house seven times, got married, changed jobs four times and moved countries as well. Only The Open University could have allowed me to do all of this while still completing my Masters.”
