Graduate study emphasises the exploration of new ideas as well as putting what you have learned into context. It typically requires a much higher degree of initiative and self-reliance than an undergraduate degree.
BSc(Hons) and MSc degrees are often pursued to give graduates better professional qualifications, while study at PhD level is essential preparation for careers in research and development. However, postgraduate degrees at all levels are increasingly demanded by the software industry.
- See current research being conducted at UC by research groups within the Department of Computer Science and Software Engineering.
Postgraduate study can bring many career benefits eg, specialist skills and enhanced knowledge, entry into specific occupations, higher starting salary/progression rates, research capability/achievement, and evidence of high academic attainment/self-discipline.
