Questions to ask Yourself before choosing a Postgraduate Program

September 2017

Choosing a Masters program requires careful deliberation and planning, and while it is crucial that you choose a degree that will help you build a career for yourself, it is also important that you select one that is equally fulfilling. A program of your interest will enable you to find a school that is best suited for you. These are questions you should consider before deciding on a program.

Study Abroad Programs

What country should you apply to?

The cost of a Study Abroad program varies by region, therefore it is important that you take into account your budget before deciding on a country. There are also other factors that you need to consider such as climatic conditions and total duration of the program. It is best that you choose a country that will help you make the most out of your education.

Where do your interests lie?

Since Post graduate degrees are linked to certain careers, it is important that you know what you wish to gain from this program. Choosing a subject that you're passionate about will provide you with transferable skills and expertise and will benefit you in your career.

When should you start applying?

Several top ranking Universities have deadlines, and so applying early on can increase your chances of gaining admission. It also allows you time to gather supporting documents that you need to submit along with your application.

Are you qualified?

Every Masters program will have certain qualifications that you need to meet in order to be accepted. Some programs may require you to submit standardized test scores, while others may require you to have some sort of work experience. It is essential that you know how these Universities will evaluate you.

Will you be required to learn a foreign language?

Learning a foreign language largely depends on the country you choose to study in. While several graduate courses are in English, there are still others where the medium of instruction is a foreign language. Before you decide on a program, find out if learning a foreign language is a prerequisite to your post graduate degree.

Can you afford it?

Masters programs are typically for two years, and hence you should plan your budget wisely. Take into account the expenses for these two years; this includes your tuition costs, accommodation, food, travel and utility costs. A Post graduate Masters program demands financial commitment, and it is important that you understand the financial responsibilities you will be taking on.
