In fact, in some fields, a postgraduate qualification is the only way to advance your career. The benefits of a postgraduate qualification on your prospects depend on your chosen career. If you’re coming to the end of your undergraduate studies but you still have the desire to learn and carry out research, and wish to differentiate yourself with future employers, a postgraduate course can satisfy your intellectual curiosity while also enhancing your career prospects. Postgraduate study gives you the chance to really specialise in your field and advance your knowledge.
