    :wave:Hi to everybody
    Firstly I have to say thank you to DegreeInfo for setting me on the right path many years ago (2002-2003). This forum saved me from making a big mistake and as a result an opportunity came about and I got a new start and new career in Higher Ed.

    In the interest of full disclosure I am director of the Center for Advanced Professional Studies (capsmdxu.org) Middlesex University's Irish and now:usa:US Work Based Studies Center.

    I am an avid supporter of DL and firmly believe that education is a right not a privilege. if I can help anyone on their journey I would be delighted :wiggle:

    I look forward to engaging and contributing in a positive manner where I can !

    Andrew

    In essence the short version is.....I was about to embark on a degree program and a possible partnership with an institution that seemed to tick all the boxes (or so I thought), having then found the forum and after a little bit of investigation I changed my mind. My investigation also fortunately threw up another possibility which I pursued leading me to a change of career and finding my true calling. Thanks to you all.

    Thanks Rich, looks like we followed somewhat similar paths. It would be interesting to discuss common interests particularly your doctoral product proposal. I can certainly share my view from the inside.
