Invest in your career and increase your salary potential
Postgraduate study may be the catalyst you need to re-energise your current career or take it in a new direction altogether. A postgraduate qualification not only increases your employability and enriches your professional engagement with your career, but also increases your salary earning potential.
The Graduate Salaries 2015 report found that the median salary of those with a postgraduate qualification is on average $21,000 – $29,000 higher than those who hold only an undergraduate qualification.
Whereas the median starting salary for an undergraduate under the age of 25 is only $53,000, a postgraduate with a graduate or diploma-level qualification has a median salary of $75,000; this increases to $80,000 for those with a masters by coursework or by research, and $83,000 for those who attain their PhD.
