Thinking of postgraduate study?

Many students undertake a postgraduate course or research. Your reasons for choosing to further your studies could include a desire to:

  • develop first degree knowledge
  • develop knowledge of a vocational area, for example information technology
  • enter a career in a professional area which requires postgraduate study such as teaching or the legal profession.

Before undertaking any course you should assess:

  • which courses are available
  • how much will it cost
  • is funding available.

For some postgraduate courses there will be a clearing house and a closing date, but in most cases there is no fixed closing date and applications should be made directly to the institution of your choice.
