In an increasingly competitive environment, there are many good reasons for adding value to your undergraduate degree by continuing to study at Master's level.
This depends on what you want to do after your degree. If you wish to go into teaching, or further research, an MA is often a mandatory requirement. Recent studies show that a postgraduate qualification may accelerate career progression in a range of professions. Employers value the transferable skills gained in postgraduate study.
You will be encouraged to develop these skills and many others through the University of Bristol's skills training programme. The University's Careers Service offers extensive training, support and guidance to all postgraduate students in preparing for a future career.
Above all, the experience of a year's intensive literary and critical study, with the support of world-renowned experts in the field, will undoubtedly be a rich and rewarding one, whatever it may lead to when you complete the course.
