After graduation (and just before) you will start thinking about further study and exactly what path you want to take.
Will you go straight to a post-graduate job, travel, or further your education?
Continuing with your studies can be the sensible option and here is why…
– One degree may not make you stand out from the crowd
A growing number of people now go to uni and leave with a degree meaning having a university education won’t always make you stand out from the crowd.
Science and medical studies especially will usually require you to have a Masters or a Ph.D. to further your research work in certain fields.
– You get more time to decide what to do
An extra year or so of studying may just give you the extra time you need to decide exactly how you want your career to go.
If you are unsure about which direction to go in then studying is the better option. It will also avoid you falling into a job/career that you hate.
Having a clear career goal can never be a bad thing.
– You could boost your potential earnings
Further education and qualifications will lead to a greater earning potential in the long run.
There will always be competition for work when leaving uni. So many others will have studied towards the same career as you.
Having extra qualifications will show dedication and perseverance for the role.
– The biggest drawback to post-grad study
The biggest drawback is definitely the cost. For home students, the tuition fee alone can be between £3000-£6000 per year with some courses costing considerably more.
There is competition to get funding to carry on with your studies or research so there are no guarantees you will make the cut for funding.
Find student accommodation
Where do you want to go?
Searched for loads of student accommodation before I found this gem amongst the rest. Really nice sizeable apartments in a great student busy location. Would highly recommend Mezzino.
Living at The Junxion has been a very homely experience for me, as from moving in on my first year of university I was a little nervous about living on my own so far away from my home in Liverpool; but that all change once I moved into my new room, as the buildings interior design gives off such a relaxing vibe that will allow you to study in peace. Although the staff in the building where so very comforting to speak to and will offer guidance on pretty much anything, as they are always there to help. Other than that I would highly recommend The Junxion to anyone as I am currently a second year living with my friend at The Junxion and I couldn’t feel more at home.
Millstone is a brilliant place to live, Ive just book for my 3rd year. The staff are kind and caring. I have love living at Millstone as it has given me independence and a bigger family.
Highly recommend Mezzino Student living, it’s furnished to a high standard and is in the heart of the student area. Has very helpful staff and it’s well run in the office.
I moved to Mayfair Court 3 years ago and we love it here. My apartment is spacious and enlightened by large windows facing Wilmslow road. Commons, including a flourishing inner garden are well kept. Staff are friendly and always there to help, and the community is diverse. Location is very convenient. There’s a bus stop at the foot of the building, a supermarket across the street, Bodey Medical Centre behind the supermarket, and plenty of restaurants and pubs around. I'm happy to call this place our home while in Manchester.
For a very spacious space with great amenities, the price is very mucb affordable. Good views and great support staff to help out at anytime of the day.
