'My research can change a person's life.'

Matt Morgan studied MA Applied Human Rights having realised the importance of research and the impact it can have on the lives of others.

‘My undergraduate dissertation was a criminological piece of research, but I quickly learnt that if it's a criminal justice issue, it's generally a human rights one. From then on I developed a profound respect for human rights and wanted to learn more.

‘I took advantage of the financial help I was entitled to as a loyalty benefit of studying my undergraduate degree at Hallam.

‘During my masters I have finally understood what is meant by the term 'autonomous learner'. You are encouraged to be an independent student, and this enables you to find your own way.

‘I loved the content on my course, and the way it was structured. We were allowed to write freely on topics of our choice, whilst at the same time applying the basic principles and theories of human rights. Learning in such an intimate environment facilitated the free sharing of ideas.’
