Where can a masters take you?

Why would you want to do a masters? You've already spent three or four years as an undergraduate - isn't it 'time to get a proper job'?

Three of our masters students explain why they carried on with their studies and the benefits it's brought them.

Benefits of doing a masters

If at a young age, you're forcing yourself to go into a field that you don't really care about because of parental pressure, pressure to get a certain type of job or have a specific career path, your career won't be as vital as it might be because your heart's not really in it.

You can do a good job, but you'll never do excellent work if your heart is not in it.
