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.
