Why study a Masters?

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 enrolling in a Master’s degree. However, remuneration shouldn’t be the only reason for studying a Masters.

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!).

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 to other diversified creative fields. 

If you’re looking for work overseas, 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.
