Thinking about doing a postgraduate degree? Not sure what to highlight in your application, how to stand out, how to get in? Considering a postgraduate degree, but also interested in gaining professional experience first?


If these are the questions in your mind as you are finishing your MA honours degree, then the next session of our series Career Paths for PIR Students on Tuesday 2nd of February at 4pm in the CMB Staff Room on the 6th floor is for you. We invited two staff members with experience in admission and two current students to talk inter alia about the practicalities of applications, what to keep in mind, what to expect, the decision to work before a postgraduate degree, career options thereafter and their own motivations.


As always, the session is informal and intimate. You can ask the questions you always wanted to ask and you can expect some honest answers.
