Career prospects

A master's degree increases your career prospects in comparison to a bachelor's degree, but at Manchester we go even further.

You'll leave here not just with a postgraduate degree but with the skills and connections to help make your dream career a reality. We work closely with organisations ranging from government bodies to global businesses, from local health services to registered charities. These connections inform our master's courses and put you on track to enter your chosen field.

Outside of your master's, our award-winning careers service provides specialist support to postgraduate students, enabling you to take control of your career.

“We’ve had a strong history of recruitment from The University of Manchester for many years, including postgraduates. Successful Manchester candidates have all been energetic and creative, with a clear focus on delivering exceptional customer service"
