Postgraduate study can be a chance to research your chosen subject in more depth or to undertake a professional/vocational course which is necessary for your chosen career.

There are a number of factors to consider when choosing a course:

• Why you want to take up further study
• Will you enjoy it?
• Can you afford it?
• Will it improve your career prospects?
• Is it necessary to get into your chosen occupation?
• Will it help you avoid the ‘big bad world’?

Further study options

The Careers and Employabiltiy Service has created a handy guide, with all you need to know about Postgraduate study: Further Study Options (pdf).

The University of Cumbria’s Postgraduate courses can be found here.
