Further education, employment, and networking opportunities to consider once you've graduated.

Successful undergraduates of any discipline may now have the option of studying further in the form of postgraduate study.* Programmes are at least one year in duration and can be studied full or part time. 

Why go on to postgraduate study? 

Some of the most popular reasons given by postgraduate students for undertaking further study are: 

  • to take a vocational course and gain specific skills with a particular career in mind that may either build on their first degree or be a complete change of direction 
  • that it increases their chances of a career in research 
  • to continue studying and specialising in an aspect of their first degree that particularly interests them 
  • to gain more qualifications in order to be more employable. 
  • to put off making the big decision about embarking upon a career and finding a job!

If you are interested in post-graduate study, find a programme at the university by browsing the online postgraduate prospectus and finding out how to apply 

* Postgraduate study is academically and intellectually more demanding than an undergraduate degree and requires the ability to study independently with little or - in some cases - no tuition. For this reason many institutions will stipulate that a good first degree (minimum second class) is required as well as evidence of a strong interest in the subject.
