DEGREE: I did a BA Hons in Retail Marketing and am currently undertaking an MSc in Evolving Retail Strategies, both at Brighton University.
DID YOU COME INTO POSTGRAD STUDY STRAIGHT FROM BEING AN UNDERGRADUATE? I completed my undergraduate degree at University of Brighton and continued with my postgraduate degree at the same university.
WHY DID YOU DECIDE TO CONTINUE YOUR STUDIES? As a part of the Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) programme I was given the opportunity to complete a Postgraduate degree.
HOW DID YOU FUND YOUR POSTGRAD STUDY? As an Associate on the KTP scheme I was allocated a generous training budget which funded my Postgraduate studies and any other vocational courses I wished to undertake.
HOW IS IT DIFFERENT FROM UNDERGRADUATE STUDY? It’s more strategic and requires detailed focus on a specific area of your research.
HOW DO YOU THINK YOUR POSTGRAD STUDY WILL HELP YOUR CAREER? It gives me that competitive advantage and a large amount of additional knowledge for my future career.
DO YOU HAVE ANY ADVICE FOR STUDENTS CONSIDERING POSTGRAD STUDY? Keep focused and good luck!!!
