How can postgraduate studies boost employability?

Taking your studies to the next level not only deepens your subject knowledge, but can also increase your employablity.

Whether you have chosen a course directly related to a particular career

Coming to the end of my undergraduate degree, I realised that translation was something I was passionate about, so I started looking into doing an MA in order to develop my skills further.

Whether you will tailor a course towards working within a particular industry

When I decided that I wanted to try and pursue a career in publishing I thought, if I’m going to do an MA, I want to focus on modern, 20th century literature and get more of an understanding of what’s been published in the past 50 years.

Our postgraduate courses give you key skills vital for employability
