Further study

It's worth taking some time to think beyond your basic motivation for wanting to pursue further study. Further study will not automatically get you a better job, but it can improve your chances if the employer requires the specialism you have developed. For some professions postgraduate qualifications are essential, e.g. for teaching in higher education and for legal careers. Often a postgraduate course is just one possible route to gaining experience and entry to a sector, such as in journalism, museum work, environmental work, and international development.
