A postgraduate degree can significantly improve a student’s career prospects. n 2020, full-time employed postgraduates of working-age earned on average £7,000 more than other Graduates (UK Government Graduate Labour Market Statistics 2021).
Oxford Brookes’ postgraduate courses are designed with employability in mind, helping to enhance students’ skills and connect them with the world of work. Many of the postgraduate degrees are accredited also. The university’s partners in an industry often contribute to students’ learning through work placements, mentoring schemes and guest lectures, as well as input into course design.
Most of the postgraduate courses allow part-time study and many have distance learning options. This flexibility can help students study while working, contributing to their professional development, or indeed allowing for career changes or progression.
Oxford Brookes’ Careers Service offers support tailored to postgraduate students’ needs, including tailored workshops, practical job application advice and career fairs.
