Case study: Victoria Milner, MSc Development Management, Guatemala
Victoria studied with The Open University for her MSc in Development Management while working in Guatemala.
“I work for a solar energy company in Guatemala that provides prepaid electricity to rural communities without access to the grid… My tutor (Jackie) constantly challenged me to think about my area of study through different lenses and to make sure that I was adding real value to the subject as a result of my learning during the masters.
As I’m sure is often the case with research, I found it a challenge to hone my over-arching research questions and ensure that I was bringing in all of my knowledge, whilst making sure that my investigation was coherent and focused.
Jackie’s guidance both informally by Skype or email and more formally through the various TMAs was instrumental in helping me achieve this. I know that the.. experience would not have been half of what it was without Jackie’s support, enthusiasm and direction…
I could not have asked for me from the OU for more support throughout my masters. I feel very proud to say that I studied with you all and I will be forever grateful.”
