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 2018 QILT Graduate Outcomes Survey found that 86.9% of postgraduates had secured full-time employment within four months of graduation, compared to 72.9% of undergraduates.
Similarly, graduates with only an undergraduate qualification earn a median full-time wage of $61,000, whereas those with a postgraduate coursework qualification earn $83,300; and this increases to $90,000 for those who have completed a masters-by-research.
