The University of Bristol’s postgraduate undergraduate courses can offer the best chance of making it into university, a survey has found.
It comes as the government aims to cut student debt by 25% by 2019, while universities are under pressure to attract and retain top graduates to help fund their ambitious targets.
Bristol University said the research, which analysed data from the university’s postgraduates and postgraduate students, showed that postgraduate studies were the most valuable route into higher education.
“The University of Wales is offering a wide range of postgraduate degrees from the University of Sussex to the University in the UK, and we see these as a key part of our undergraduate programme,” the university said in a statement.
“Students who want to study postgraduate subjects at our university are more likely to get into postgraduate programmes in the future than those who do not.”
We have a wide selection of postgraduate courses, including those offered in the humanities and social sciences, and many of them can be used by people seeking to study a career in a variety of disciplines, from architecture and engineering to law and health and wellbeing.
“It is our ambition to ensure that all postgraduation students have the best possible opportunity to study for a postgraduate qualification in their chosen area of study, and that all university graduates have access to postgraduate education opportunities.”
