Why do postgraduate study?

We believe that an investment in knowledge still pays the best return. By developing your skills, expertise, experience and networks, you show that you're ready for extra responsibilities or a new challenge.

With a postgraduate qualification, you are likely to earn more in the long run.

The median salary for working-age (16-64) postgraduates in 2019 was £8,000 more than graduates, and £17,000 more than non-graduates.
(Department for Education Analysis of the Labour Force Survey)

Whatever your reasons, you need to be passionate, dedicated, motivated and determined to make it. The challenge will stimulate you - and your sense of achievement when you realise your goal will make it worthwhile.
