If you’re passionate about your subject and want to boost your employability, it might be time to consider studying a Master’s degree at BU.
Postgraduate study isn’t for everyone – here are some benefits to help you decide.
You’ll get to develop new skills and challenge yourself academically, and with the support of our research-led academics, really get stuck in to your chosen subject area. Or there are conversion courses if you’d like to change your subject area – such as law or social work.
There’s also the personal and intellectual challenge. Lowri shares in her blog How I’ve changed since starting my master’s: “not only my attitude towards certain things but my maturity level and the confidence I now have in myself as a person”.
Best yet, according to the latest Graduate Labour Market Statistics (2014) – postgrads earn an additional £9,000 per year compared to undergrads - good news when you consider funding support is quite different than for undergraduate study.
Saying that, there’s up to 25% off our tuition fees* for BU graduates as well as our scholarships from £2,000, and it’s expected that a national postgraduate loan scheme will be available from 2016-17 following a government consultation.
We’re having an Open Afternoon at on Wednesday 25 November between 1pm and 6pm so you can find out about the range of postgraduate courses - visit our website to discover more of the benefits of postgraduate study and book to meet with an academic.
If you’re not sure whether postgraduate study is for you, watch Alice’s vlog about the differences between undergraduate and postgraduate study, subscribe to our Student Blog, or join in the conversations on our Postgraduate Facebook page.
And remember, if you’re thinking about taking a break from study, you can return to BU to do a Master's degree at any time in the future.
