Taught or Research
Firstly, deciding between a taught and research based programme depends upon varying factors including your personality, the length of course, financial factors and the type of career you are aiming for, therefore it's important that you understand the differences between the two modes of postgraduate study.
Choosing your Programme
With such great choice, comes a very important decision. Each faculty and department offers a wide variety of postgraduate courses designed to provide you with extensive knowledge of your subject choice, and help give you an edge over the competition in the job market.
