Postgraduate Degrees – University of Sunderland

Are you looking to change or enhance
your career? Or to grow your knowledge from your undergraduate degree? Then a Postgraduate Degree will create new possibilities for your future. Postgraduates on average stand to earn six thousand pounds a year more than those with an undergraduate degree. At the University of Sunderland our alumni receive a generous tuition free discount too. Additionally you can apply for a
government loan to support you. Available depending on your circumstances. (Laura Nelson) I’d made the decision to carry on with my MA because it was a really good time
to carry on while I didn’t have the responsibility of having a full-time job.
Also while I was still in the mindset of being an academic student. (Anthony) As an undergraduate you were taught and you kind of follow. Whereas when you start
doing your postgraduate degree the onus is on you and you have to take
responsibility and accountability for what you want to do and what you want to
achieve You’re expected to maintain a level of self-study and also to develop a critical voice. Within your master’s course you will
still do different modules just like your undergraduate study. Whereas a PhDis one big piece of work, that is your own work. You’ll become an expert in that
particular area and you will be contributing to knowledge. And then I’ll
be called doctor by the end of it (laughs). I felt really supported coming back into
education after being out in the workplace for so long. Simply because of
all the resources available at the University of Sunderland. I think as long
as you access all of these resources you will have more productive time here. I thought that the tutors as well were incredibly good at what they were doing and they were
taken into account everyone’s personality and they were able to help
everyone. This job is pretty much my dream job. I went to university because I
wanted to be involved in sports and to be in the area that I’ve always wanted to be has been absolutely incredible. I’ve only got my tutors during my
Public Relations course to thank. (Lisa) Sitting in a room with chief executives and directors, who I used to feel very nervous around and actually
presenting to them and then coming to me for advice. I think that is a come
encompasses basically what I’ve learned at University A part of the process of
becoming a postgraduate student is eliminating the doubt that you have that you can’t do it. The most important piece of advice I would say is take advantage of
all of the resources the university has to offer. The best part about it is the
lecturers and how helpful they are. You’re always given opportunities to
develop what you want to develop. Because you will feel like you can really achieved something.
