What is the difference between Postgraduate study to Undergraduate study?

Postgraduate study typically involves more specialised and advanced study in a particular field of interest. While undergraduate studies provide a broad foundation of knowledge, postgraduate studies allow students to delve deeper into their chosen subject, gain expertise, and develop advanced skills. Here are some key benefits of pursuing postgraduate study.

Advanced Research Methods & Independent Study

Postgraduate courses often involve rigorous research and independent study. Students have the opportunity to engage in cutting-edge research, contribute to the advancement of knowledge in their field, and develop critical thinking and analytical skills.

Professional Project

Many postgraduate course at UCFB include a professional project component, which allows students to apply their theoretical knowledge to real-world problems. This experience enhances practical skills and can be valuable when entering the job market.


Postgraduate study allows students to specialize further in their chosen subject. Whether it's a specific area of a discipline or an interdisciplinary approach, this specialization can make graduates highly sought after in their field.

Career Advancement

Possessing a postgraduate degree can make you stand out in the job market. As the percentage of individuals with postgraduate qualifications is relatively low - just 1.3% of the total population in the UK hold a postgraduate degree. Having this advanced degree can give you a competitive edge and potentially open up higher-level career opportunities.

Expand your network

Postgraduate studies offer opportunities to connect with fellow students, academics, and professionals in your field. Building a strong network can lead to collaborations, job referrals, and other valuable career connections. At UCFB, we provide an elite network of sports industry professionals for you to network, interact and learn from.

Job Prospects and Increased Earnings

In many industries, a postgraduate degree can lead to better job prospects and increased earning potential. Some positions may require a postgraduate qualification for eligibility, while others may offer higher salary levels to candidates with advanced degrees.
