Boost your career prospects with a postgraduate degree
A postgraduate degree boosts your CV, helping you to stand out in an increasingly competitive market. Not only that, but by extending your learning you can gain a deeper insight into your chosen subject, significantly increasing your earning power and better preparing you for the career journey ahead. Master’s loans – which work very similar to undergraduate loans – are available for many of the courses.
Postgraduate study brings with it a whole host of networking opportunities, as you meet and work alongside likeminded students, experienced tutors and industry figures, opening doors for you beyond your studies. What’s more, with median salaries for postgrads £6,000 higher than they are for graduates (Department for Education, 2022), continuing your education could turn out to be a very lucrative decision.
Choose from over 190 courses
Leeds Beckett offer an incredible selection of postgraduate courses in a whole host of different subjects. Fancy digging into International Human Rights Practice? How about Counselling and Psychotherapy? There’s all this and more across a vast spectrum of areas. What’s more, with full-time, part-time and distance learning available, it couldn’t be easier to fit postgrad study into your life.
There are three types of postgraduate qualifications to choose from. You can go for a master’s, which usually take between one to three years to complete, and is available in everything from Accounting & Finance to Journalism. Postgrad certificates and diplomas provide a shorter option, whilst taking you to the same level as a master’s. Alternatively, you can dive straight in to a PhD.
