The week will be online so you can join a session wherever you are. The sessions are a great opportunity to find out more and start thinking about postgraduate study for next September or beyond. Postgraduate study could be a great option for you if you want to enhance your career. In fact, The UK Commission for Employment and Skills predicts that roughly 15% of jobs (1 in 7) are likely to need a postgraduate degree by 2022. Our alumni have said that their postgraduate studies: improved their confidence; enabled them to network; reshaped their thinking by acquiring a professional mindset and fine-tuned the skills they learnt at undergraduate studies.
