Considering a postgraduate degree? Here's what the experts say...


185 days ago

It's that time of year when many graduates are weighing up their options for the future.

Should they embark on a career or rather opt to pursue postgraduate studies?

The Independent Institute of Education (IIE) believes further study may well improve a graduate's chances of finding employment.

Nola Payne from the institute explains:

There are a lot of careers where just having a degree is not enough cause there is a flood of graduates coming out with similar or the same degrees and there are just limited job options for them.
