Trying Again

Why bother with a post grad? Are they even worth it? Have your say! 26-10-2016

    If you do not get into the ideal course but one seems just about good enough, is it worth taking an extra year to try again and make it onto the ideal course?

    In regards to Psychology education, it isn't so much about the institution, rather what mark you get. i.e. a first (preferably) or a 2:1 at undergraduate level, and a high merit/distinction at postgraduate level.

    I think most of the mature students/psychology professionals who post here will voice the little significance of where the degree was earned. Once you have the qualifications you aren't going to be reprimanded for graduating from a non-Russell group uni, if you have the upper echelon grades. The degree should demonstrate the ability you have in the field -- that's essentially the the primary point of interest.
