Postgraduate study opens up a wealth of opportunities for our graduates. At the most basic level, our postgraduate degrees provide successful graduates with a wider range of job opportunities in New Zealand and abroad.

Fast-track your career

Our postgraduate alumni work in international institutions, various arms of the New Zealand Government, major non-governmental organisations, as academics around the globe, and in major law firms.

If you hope to build a career in policy, politics or government, a postgraduate qualification is largely essential. Even those wishing to work overseas will find it difficult today without a postgraduate qualification. A postgraduate degree at UC is a stepping-stone to success.
