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.

In England, the median salary for postgraduates (£42,000) was £7,000 more than for working-age (those aged 16 to 64) graduates (£35,000) in 2020.
(Graduate labour market statistics 2020. These statistics show labour market conditions for graduates, postgraduates and non-graduates living in England.)

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.

  • WELCOMING YOU ALL - Teesside University is proud to be The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2022 University of the Year for Social Inclusion.

  • GIVE YOURSELF AN ADVANTAGE - Stand out from other job applicants with your qualification and specialist knowledge.

  • DEVELOP YOUR CONFIDENCE - If you have something extra to offer employers, you will feel more confident when you're applying for a job.

  • RESEARCH AT THE HIGHEST LEVEL - Drive your own topic and help change society.

  • EXPLORE FURTHER - Continue with a subject that excites you. Challenge your brain and expand your knowledge - develop advanced skills and academic knowledge.

  • CHANGE TRACK - With a postgraduate conversion course it's not too late to embark on a different career.

  • EXPAND YOUR NETWORKS - You're more likely to succeed if you're in touch with a broad pool of contacts.

  • DEVELOP YOUR TRANSFERABLE SKILLS - Improve your project management, critical thinking, research skills, time management, presentation skills and teamwork.

  • ADOBE - Study at Europe's first Adobe Creative Campus and develop your creative and digital skills.
