Most people who choose to study a Master’s degree do so in the hope that postgraduate study will further improve their career prospects.

"Higher Earning Potential" is one of the most-cited reasons for a student to begin enrolling in a Master’s degree. However, remuneration shouldn’t be the only reason for studying a Masters and we are here to tell you why! 

The Industry Needs You

Australia’s creative sector is rapidly emerging as a progressive and powerful economic force, contributing over $30 billion annually to the economy. This dynamic sector is required to continually change, innovate and disrupt to sustain itself and respond to rapidly changing consumer demands. It needs leaders, change-makers and visionaries. (That’s you!).

"My advice for students coming into the masters is to be ready to think a lot for yourself and do your own research – after all, this is your interest, what you want to pursue. Be active in research because it’s definitely worth it in the end!
Dewa Bagus, MCI Graduate

Job prospects

You have the ability to change, progress or redirect your career altogether. A Masters can allow you to teach at a university level, or to take the next step up the ladder in your career. It may also open up new opportunities you may not have planned for through new contacts and increased awareness of other diversified creative fields. 

If you’re looking for work overseas, choosing to further study also means that you can qualify for higher skill level work, which can make it a lot easier to get a VISA in many countries. 

Pursue your interest in more depth

It is an incredible opportunity to understand the innate critical thinking of your chosen field, become an expert and a master of tomorrow’s jobs, today. Delve into your passion projects while progressing your skills and constructing your future.
