Postgraduate sponsorship makes for well-qualified, enthusiastic, committed employees and as a result an increasing number of employers are willing to fund or contribute to the costs of a postgraduate qualification. Alternatively employers may want to help by providing other forms of support - paid leave, money for course materials or help with examination fees.
Professor Mary Stuart, Vice Chancellor at the University of Lincoln, said: “Studying at postgraduate level can introduce you to new ideas, up-to-date research, and critical thinking skills. Postgraduate students have the opportunity to develop advanced specialist subject knowledge of a particular subject.”
