"I found the MRS Advanced Certificate really interesting and challenging; it helped me understand the research process much better and I often use elements of what I’ve learned in my day-to-day work.

"Completing the Advanced Certificate in Social and Market Research was a very straight-forward and enjoyable process. I hadn’t done any studying since university days (over 20 years earlier) so it was great to have Virginia’s support as my online tutor with writing my assignment and following the course materials leading up to the exam. The content of the course has been very useful to me, both helping me fulfil the responsibilities of my current position in consumer market research and in giving me a broad grounding and understanding of the wider research arena. I would definitely recommend getting this qualification if you intend to spend any part of your career in the research industry".
