If you’re considering postgraduate study, then our extensive range of courses and research topics allows you to specialise in an area you’ve not studied previously or expand your knowledge in a subject you're already passionate about. And what’s more, we offer continuing Huddersfield graduates some great benefits in addition to the Government loans now available to help cover the cost of studying and living.
A postgraduate qualification is a great way to improve your professional prospects, change your career path or master your passion. And at Huddersfield we're proud that 96.4% of our postgraduate students go on to work and/or further study within fifteen months of graduating (HESA Graduate Outcomes 2017/18, UK domiciled). Postgraduate degrees and research are challenging, inspiring and can make a huge difference to your professional life. In fact, the average starting salary of our postgraduates is £28.7K per annum (DLHE 2016/17).
In some professions, including teaching, law, architecture and health, you’ll be required to gain industry accreditation as standard*. Within other sectors, a postgraduate qualification will allow you to stand out from the crowd with specialist knowledge, expertise and skills or even allow you to change career direction entirely.
Whatever your reasons, you’ll have access to great employment support through the Careers and Employability Service – not just whilst you’re here, but throughout your working life.
*Please see individual courses for more information on accreditation by professional bodies.
If you’re interested in progressing your current field of study, then we recommend that you speak to your course tutor about further study options – they’re always happy to help. You can explore your taught Master's porgression options by using the 'Explore our programmes' search facility below.
