Where have our students gone for work?
Many of our Masters' level students go onto research degrees but graduates have also returned to careers in which having the MA or MSc degree has helped their advancement to higher positions. Graduates have also entered teaching, working in finance industries, telecommunications, media production and the military in the wide variety of countries from which they originate.
PhD graduates have often entered academia in universities across the world although some work as researchers for professional companies.
