If you choose to seek further education after completing a Bachelor’s degree, postgraduate courses are one of your best options. Incorporating graduate certificates, graduate diplomas and Master’s degrees, postgraduate study offers university graduates the chance to specialise and become experts in their field. Ranging from around one to four years in length, postgraduate courses usually encompass either coursework or research. Coursework degrees are best suited to those wishing to enhance their knowledge and skills to boost career opportunities, while research degrees are targeted towards those pursuing research-based or academic careers. Postgraduate education is often designed to facilitate study pathways – for example, if you complete a graduate certificate, you may be able to progress and credit it towards a graduate diploma or Master’s degree when you’re ready.
