Accelerate your career
A postgraduate taught course offers you the ideal chance to specialise in a particular field and gain a qualification that can enhance your employment prospects and professional development. In fact 94% of our postgraduates go on to employment and/or further study within six months of graduating (Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education (DLHE) survey 2009 and 2010).
The route to greater job satisfaction
Postgraduate study also offers the opportunity to re-focus your career or retrain in a completely new area. We offer a choice of qualifications, whether you want to study for a full Master’s degree, a Postgraduate Certificate or a Postgraduate Diploma, and many of them can offer a complete change from your undergraduate degree.
Earn up to 30% more with a master’s course
Studies into the earning potential of postgraduates have consistently shown they earn on average up to 30% more than undergraduates. For example, Prospects produced a report which showed female postgraduates are estimated to earn up to 34% more than females with a first degree and males earn more at on average 20% more (Prospects Postgraduate Destinations and Earnings 2003).
Recent research, reported in The Financial Times has shown that Graduates with only one degree are at an increasing disadvantage in the UK job market owing to a surge in postgraduate qualifications, which can boost an individual’s earning potential by £200,000 over a lifetime. Even more reason to start your postgraduate study.
