Make this the year you stop just thinking about postgraduate study and start doing. Want to know why? Read on…
Now is the time to invest
Historically low interest rates, combined with a growing and transitioning economy (opens an external site), mean right now the best investment you can make is yourself. Your knowledge, your skills and your networks. Position yourself at the vanguard of Australia’s new economy rather than be left behind.
Get a return on investment sooner
According to the Quality Indicators for Learning and Teaching (opens an external site), the median salary for master degree holders in 2017 was $81,000, 35% higher than those with a bachelor degree. The sooner you do it, the more time you have for it to be paying dividends.
Control your career
The average Australian changes jobs every 3.3 years and will have 5 careers in their lifetime. The ticket to you being in control of this is having the skills, networks and confidence that are the unique hallmarks of postgraduate education.
More competition than ever before
Think a bachelor degree is enough? Over the past decade (opens an external site), over 1.258 million Australians completed an undergraduate degree, including 144,601 in 2016 alone, more than any previous year. Over the same time, postgraduate completions grew by 44%. Furthermore, a survey of graduate outcomes (opens an external site) found that 90% of Australians who completed a postgraduate Business or Management degree found full time employment within four months of completion, over 18% higher than the average for undergraduate degree holders. To compete in today’s professional landscape, postgraduate qualifications are almost a prerequisite.
Choose when and how long you study
Not sure you want to commit to a whole master degree? Do an embedded graduate certificate or diploma, or even just an individual subject as an entrée or to top up your skills. And you can choose how many subjects you do per week to match your workload and other commitments.
Recognition of prior learning
In most programs, you can receive credit for previous related postgraduate and even undergraduate study, freeing you up to focus on learning something new. But you have to have done it in the past decade.
Learn from world leaders
Australian universities have never been ranked higher. UTS is one of the world’s top 10 young universities, and number 1 in Australia.
Relevance to your real world
We don’t just link to industry, we shape it. UTS has a reputation for innovation and entrepreneurship forged from being at the forefront of creative thinking for over a generation. Be a part of something new.
Universities that invest in you
UTS, like all public universities (opens an external site), invests your fee income back at you, your capabilities, your facilities, your resources, your brand. We don’t have to keep shareholders happy with increased profits. It’s all about you.
Government fee support
Do you know you can defer paying your postgraduate fees in the same way as your undergraduate tuition fees? FEE HELP (opens an external site) is the government loan initiative that covers Australian postgraduate student fees, where you pay it back according to your income.
UTS Alumni save 10%
If you have a previous degree from UTS, you can now save 10% on fees for postgraduate UTS courses.
