Postgraduate Studies at Australian Universities
One of the most common questions people will ask is “should I get a Masters Degree?” There’s no right or wrong answer to this so I’ll get you started with my own thoughts and experiences.
Instead of asking “Should I get a Masters” try asking yourself “Why do I want a Masters”. It’s a good idea to have a clear reason why you are studying and work towards that goal. Gaining a Masters Degree should be a part of that process.
Often what you will find is that what you get from your studies is not what you were expecting but non the less valuable for it. Other times the benefit won’t be immediately obvious, but over time you will begin to draw on what you learned.
Without doubt you will learn things you don’t yet know, you will meet interesting, like-minded professionals and will have a document that proves you have certain skill sets. Don’t underestimate this, people who have never met you before don’t know your capabilities, a Post Grad degree speaks volumes about you.
