5 Ways to Enjoy Self-Improvement While Doing Your Youth Studies Master’s

The University of Bolton’s MA Community Development and Youth Studies course is one of the best Postgraduate programmes, with students voting us No.1 for Student Satisfaction in Social Work Courses for the second year running in Greater Manchester, and the North West!*

For graduates looking to take their career to the next level, there’s nowhere better to enjoy professional development. Growing as a person is just as important as advancing your practical skills, and that’s why our course tutors work with you to unlock your true potential. If you want to make the most of your training, here are five self-improvement tips that will help you during your course:

1. Create a career plan
Having direction and focus is key if you’re looking to improve your practice. As a student at Bolton University, you will benefit from one-to-one mentorship, with support from passionate teaching staff, as well as our dedicated Employability Team. We will nurture your talent and establish a pathway to your dream job, advising you on personal development in your chosen field.

2. Develop transferrable self-improvement skills
Skills training during your Youth Studies degree is only sustainable when you learn to apply different skills in real-life settings. That’s why it’s important to get hands-on experience, to make your skills transferable for a range of career paths.

3. Always ask for feedback
In order to get the most out of self-improvement and personal growth during our master’s programme, students should regularly ask for feedback. Not only should you seek constructive guidance from course leaders, but you should also get advice from other students when doing team projects.
