Vocational Postgraduate qualifications on the rise

Published: Wednesday, 06 March 2013

As graduates look to change career direction, fill skills gaps for particular employment or increase their breadth over qualifications more and more are choosing vocational postgraduate degrees.

According to a recent article in the Guardian many more graduates are choosing to gain skills and knowledge related to specific careers. One way of doing this is to look at vocational postgraduate qualifications. Many postgraduate courses do not have specific degree entry requirements. So when a specific job does require a particular degree then studying a for a postgraduate qualification could be the quickest solution to gain the skills and knowledge required.

Recent examples include people studying for Music Therapy Masters degrees following performance degrees and people taking Criminology degrees following History to find work in the criminal justice sector.
