    The University of Liverpool is one of the best and most recognised institutions in the World. To study online at the University of Liverpool gave me socially a positive consideration in my organisation but also in my country. My best experience while studying my course was the way they welcome people, the good work environment, students’ and lecturers’ interaction. Apart from the knowledge I got during my course, after getting my master's degree, many things have changed in my career especially in terms of job position, responsibilities and promotion.
