Postgraduate study - is it for you?

When it comes down to postgraduate study there are a lot of things you have to consider before deciding if it is the right option for you.

Postgraduate courses – what's available?

Each year roughly 20 per cent of graduates choose to stay in education and do some form of further study. Postgraduate study can help you train in very specific areas of interest to you, and so you must chose carefully not just what subject, but what type of course you wish to take on.

How to apply for postgraduate courses

When it comes to applying for postgraduate courses, don't expect the same process as an undergraduate application.

Postgraduate funding

Funding options for postgraduate students.

IET postgraduate funding

If you achieved a 2:1 or higher in your first degree and are an IET member (or are interested in becoming a member) then why not apply for an IET Postgraduate Scholarship worth up to £10,000?


Publishing your research

Publishing the results of your research is vital. It helps your academic career prospects and plays a vital part in securing research funding.

Part-time postgraduate study

Many students cannot afford the cost of spending yet another year in full-time education - but there are alternatives. Studying part-time means that students have the opportunity to earn while they learn.
