A postgraduate degree is a type of qualification obtained after completing an undergraduate degree. Master’s degrees, Postgraduate Diplomas and Certificates, and PhDs are all examples of postgraduate degrees.
All postgraduate degrees have one thing in common: they allow you to continue your education in a specialised subject, and they require an undergraduate degree to be eligible for admittance. Higher postgraduate credentials, such as a PhD, often need you to obtain both an undergraduate and postgraduate degree in order to be admitted to the programme.
Postgraduate degrees have been pursued for a variety of reasons, including the desire to enter academia and do research or to specialize in a certain field. They are usually much shorter in duration than undergraduate programmes. Some people opt to pursue a postgraduate degree in order to completely modify their academic or career trajectories.
