Event description

Description

Are you thinking about studying for a full-time or part-time Masters degree within our Faculty of Sport, Health and Applied Sciences to develop your career or prepare for an entirely new challenge?

Or are you thinking about taking the first steps towards a PhD?

Our Sport, Health and Applied Sciences Postgraduate Open Evening is a great opportunity to see our facilities, speak to our teaching staff, explore career opportunities, and take part in talks with industry experts and St Mary's alumni.

We'll also be covering different ways to fund your course, suitable accommodation, part-time study options, the applications process and more.


Taught Masters degrees at St Mary's

Our Masters degrees provide a strong emphasis on professional and career development: according to the latest published statistics over 98% of our postgraduates progress onto professional destinations (Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education, HESA 2015/16), and we’ve been ranked 1st in London in eight categories in WhatUni Student Choice Awards 2017, including:

  • Postgraduate
  • Course and Lecturers
  • Student Support
  • Job Prospects


The benefits of postgraduate study

The most recent data provided by the Department for Education in its Graduate Labour Market Statistics 2017 report shows that postgraduates are almost 13% more likely to be in high skilled employment and earning between £3,500-£6,000 a year more than graduates with just a first degree.

These trends are supported by the findings of The Sutton Trust in their report The Postgraduate Premium: Revisiting Trends in Social Mobility and Educational Inequalities, which found that increasing numbers of graduates are taking advantage of postgraduate opportunities to distinguish themselves in the job market and can earn a ‘postgraduate premium’ of approximately £200,000 more over the course of a 40-year career.


What to expect

The Open Evening will give you an opportunity to speak to members of our teaching staff about the postgraduate programmes within our Faculty of Sport, Health and Applied Sciences, and join in talks on issues in the world of sport and health. You'll also be able to take tours of the sports and teaching facilities and speak to members of our Student Services about any other questions you have related to postgraduate study.
