Heather Cromar Genealogy student
I was thrilled to discover a few years ago that not only was this graduate degree available, it was a fully online program. This was particularly important to me as an older adult who did not want to uproot myself and travel elsewhere for additional schooling.

The Strathclyde course was well structured, built on experience and the MSc was a recognised genealogy and general qualification.  Also, the Strathclyde’s FutureLearn genealogy course gave me quite a good sneak preview of the general areas the course might cover and gave me a feel for Strathclyde’s approach.

I liked the fact that the course was clearly designed for remote learning, rather than just an adaptation of an existing on-site course. The teaching staff were real enthusiasts, very much involved in the subject, and with a range of different specialisms.

The course has provided me with enough information in key areas that have enabled me to have the confidence to give talks. The breadth of knowledge needed to complete the MSc was extremely wide and the ability to choose my own topic on a subject of personal interest allowed me to research a potentially publishable dissertation and gain a highly prestigious qualification at the same time.
