Going on to do further study can open up a wide variety of opportunities in the professions and this section gives you information and advice about what courses you can do to best benefit your career in a particular profession.

In some sectors, such as legal, education and medical, further study is required to enter a specific profession. Visit our Career Sectors to find out what qualifications are needed in the profession of your choice, and what kinds of non-traditional routes are available too.

Financing postgraduate study can be tough so our section on where you can obtain funding, both from professional organisations and government sources, is a valuable source if further study is the right choice for you.

Obtaining a professional qualification is another great way of moving up the ladder and getting a career among the top professions.
