Postgraduate Study

Last updated May 13th, 2013
An increasing number of job opportunities will require someone with a postgraduate qualification, which may lead those entering the job market for the first time wondering exactly what is a postgraduate? And how can you become one? Postgraduate study involves learning and studying for professional or academic certificates or other qualifications for which a first degree (or Bachelor’s degree) is required. Postgraduate study can include university courses or accredited courses such as those offered by the Event Academy accredited by the Chartered Institute of Marketing,  globally recognised for its professional courses in marketing. Postgraduate study courses are usually more in depth than entry level management diploma courses such as the Diploma in Event Management, also offered by the Event Academy designed for those looking to start a career or gain an introduction to a subject. There are many reasons for choosing to pursue postgraduate studies in the UK and a recession may be the perfect opportunity to invest in improving your future career prospects through postgraduate study. Statistically, the majority of postgraduates earn more than undergraduates over their careers, so achieving a postgraduate diploma may prove to be an investment that will more than pay for itself in time. Perhaps more importantly though, the advantage of postgraduate study is that it allows you to really focus in an area, such as event management, which you have decided is something for which you have a real passion and interest. Another advantage of postgraduate study – too often overlooked – is that it enables you to gain a clear insight into industry and create valuable contacts. Although it may not be your main reason, postgraduate study can provide industry contacts and work experience opportunities. The Event Academy Postgraduate course, leading to a postgraduate diploma, which builds on the management diploma, is a level 7 qualification in event management, designed specifically for those who are looking for an in-depth insight into the industry wanting to learn about logistical event planning and develop their strategic skill. The Event Academy staff have extensive contacts within the industry and are able to place postgraduate students in exciting work placements. Previous postgraduates of the Event Academy, now pursuing successful careers in the events industry, have described their decision to pursue postgraduate study as ‘one of the best decisions I could have made for my career’.
