The reasons to consider postgrad studies are plentiful. Regardless of whether you want to specialise, or switch to a new field: you’ll future-proof your career, get a buzz from the intellectual stimulation, expand your circle, and feel more satisfied in your career.
Postgrad info night attendees share why they’re considering further study.
1. YOUR EDUCATION IS A BLUE-CHIP INVESTMENT
We’re told to invest in property, shares, insurance, and our health and wellbeing. Let’s not forget our minds. As automation rises, so too will the demand for human specialists. The markets might crash, and you can’t fully control your health: your education is the one thing that can never be taken away from you.
And it doesn’t hurt that, on average, people with a postgraduate degree typically earn $400,000 more over the course of their career than their bachelor-only counterparts.*
2. PEOPLE WILL CARE ABOUT WHAT YOU HAVE TO SAY
Beyond the immediate perks of a promotion or an exciting new career, one of the most satisfying components of postgraduate study is homing in on a particular topic area, and becoming an expert in your field.
You’ll be as refreshing as a glass of cool water in comparison to those who know very little about a lot. Feel your shoulder increasingly tapped on for your expert opinion. See those LinkedIn requests multiply. Nothing’s more fulfilling than having a purpose and being genuinely valued.
If you have an interest in something, it’s for a reason. Come along to our Postgrad Info Evening to chat with our academics and discover how you could turn your passion into a fulfilling career.
The scary-good things about contemplating a return to university.
3. YOU’LL MEET PEOPLE WHO MAKE YOU EXCITED TO BE ALIVE
Say goodbye to polite-but-mind-numbingly-dull-small-talk. As Eleanor Roosevelt once said, “Small minds discuss people, average minds discuss events, great minds discuss ideas.”
You’ll delve deeper and broaden your mind with people who’ll challenge you and allow you to grow. Beyond providing the intellectual stimulation you crave, these peers will bolster your circle and build the connections you need to land the job you want.
IT’S TIME TO INVEST IN YOU.
Don’t let another 12 months pass by that leave you wondering, “What if?” Come and chat to our academics at our Postgrad Info Evening.
