Master's degrees

Should I study a Master's?

Hear from current Master's students, what they consider to be the main motivators for, and benefits of studying a Master's degree.

Students should do a Master’s because I feel like it's just another opportunity to learn even more and to go deeper into your area of interest.

The Master’s sets me up for getting a higher level job after graduation, mainly due to modules that I wouldn't have otherwise learnt, and they're really good employability skills.

Most of the time when you go to the job market, they will always want to see what you've done when it comes to academic education.

Being able to make yourself stand out from the crowd by not only having your Bachelor's, you've also got a Master’s, you've demonstrated that deeper level of learning.

You've become a subject expert in your field.

You've proven that you can project manage on your own and you’ve gone that extra mile.

The first time I came to the University of Portsmouth, it gave me a feeling like I was already in the industry.

I get the chance to meet mentors, I get the chance to meet professionals and I get the chance to learn a lot, and the University itself offers a lot of opportunities for students to work on themselves and also improve themselves professionally and socially.

Since I struggle with dyslexia and dyspraxia, the University of Portsmouth can offer you so much support, not just in dyslexia but with other disabilities as well.

I received support from my course leader, from my tutors, and any question that I’ve had has always been answered.

I really truly believe that doing a Master’s qualification has enabled me to have the job that I actually wanted and to get as far as I have done.

If you'd like to find out more about postgraduate study, you can come along to one of our open evenings.

There's a wealth of information on our website.
