Questions to ponder upon

Do you want to stay at a place where you know the environment, the department and the people, or are you looking for a change of scene?

• Is funding an issue? Would it be cheaper to find a course nearer home, or a part-time course you could combine with working?

• How is the department structured? What is it’s reputation?

• What support is given to postgraduate students by the department and the university?

• Are there enough postgraduates in the department to give you support and provide a sociable atmosphere?

• What jobs have previous students on the course gone on to do.
