Steven Thirkle

MSc Project Management

Steven first studied project management on his BSc in Business Information Management, and discovered an appreciation for the psychosocial aspect. This led to studying for his MSc in Project Management at Northumbria University. “My MSc experience was no less than superb and I am indebted to all of the lecturers on the programme. I incorporated my interests of wellbeing into the course, and the lecturers were incredibly supportive of this. Most of my projects were around mindfulness, as I was studying mindful leaders.

“The course is multidisciplinary, which I needed at the time as I was still unsure on my future. I took a great deal from it – a whole host of improvements to my professional and personal toolkit, confidence, presentation skills and, unquestionably, communication skills."

Steven is now studying for a PhD at Northumbria. Sponsored by the Tees, Esk and Wear Valleys NHS Foundation Trust, he is looking at trauma informed care application and measurement strategies in the NHS mental health service. “I would not be doing this if it wasn’t for my experience on the MSc Project Management programme and the skills I learned will be invaluable in my future career.”
