Why undertake postgraduate study?

Some good reasons:

  • To learn more about a subject you enjoy, perhaps with a view to working in that area or doing a PhD eventually.
  • To gain an edge when applying for jobs. A lot of people have BSc degrees. An MSc helps you stand out from the crowd.
  • To prepare yourself for jobs that involve technical leadership, whether in business or industry.
  • Some jobs require a postgraduate qualification (e.g. teaching, cutting-edge research and development posts).
  • To change career area, for example if it's difficult to find work in your original field or you no longer find it interesting.
  • To boost a below-average first degree. A good MSc can compensate for a poor BSc.
  • To update, deepen or broaden your knowledge of key technologies.
  • To develop advanced intellectual and other transferable skills.
