Tanya Chetcuti, BSc Computing and Information Systems, Malta
"When you work full-time while studying, you need to sacrifice personal time, which meant that I took my studies seriously. My ambition was to not only to complete my degree successfully but to make the best out of the time spent studying. I gained a first-class degree and also the prize for Best Overall Achievement. The achievement was a priceless sensation."
Tanya studied part-time with St Martins Institute of IT in Malta, BSc Computing and Information Systems, and found that working while she studied enabled her to relate much better to the to the course content and apply it to her job.
The qualification also made Tanya highly marketable, and a sought-after IT job at the European Commission followed on graduation.
"I am still constantly looking for challenging opportunities that will allow me to improve further my knowledge and skills and in turn to advance in my career."
