Further Study

further study

People continue to study for a variety of reasons such as:

  • A need to specialise further in a particular academic area
  • Need a particular professional or vocational qualification i.e. teaching or social work
  • Enjoy their subject so much
  • Do not know what they want to do and this puts off decision making

Think carefully about your motives, in particular if they fall into the – ‘I am not sure what I what to do’ category. If you need time to think, consider short-term or voluntary work as an alternative

If you know you want to study, think carefully about the following:

  • What subject do you want to study?
  • How do you want to study it e.g. part-time, full-time or distance learning?
  • How are you going to fund it?
  • Where do you want to study?
  • Do you have the right qualifications for entry?
  • Steps to Postgraduate Study   information and tools to help decision-making about which postgraduate taught (PGT) course to study

The Prospects website contains a database of courses that you can search and a list of latest courses  offered by higher education institutions.
