What are the benefits of postgraduate study?

Updated 26/09/2018 12.40 PM

Students undertake postgraduate study for a number of reasons, these can include: 

  • To increase their likelihood of securing course-related employment
  • To change careers or specialisations
  • For personal interest
  • For accreditation purposes.
Not only does postgraduate study refine course specific knowledge and skills, but it has also been shown to greatly improve the transferable skills and qualities sought by employers.
