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

    Hello everyone,
    I'm a 42 year old student currently in my second year of a degree in History at Bishop Grosseteste University in Lincoln. The above course recently caught my eye as Family History is something of particular interest. Whilst I would love to apply next year, the fees of £8,200 for the year are, to put it mildly, a bit too much - and this is for a distance learning course. Still not put off completely, is there anybody out there with more information on this, perhaps current students? Thank you in advance for any info you can offer.

    You need to be clearer about what info you're after. The fees are the fees and no one on here can tell you any different. The course content will give you an idea of what will be taught and how and any other questions are best answered by the website and the course admin team.

    I thought I was being clear enough. As for the fees, they are higher than the majority of Postgraduate courses - like it or not, its a fact. I'll get information another way. I was trying to get the opinion of the students who are there, not the University who will always say how great it is. Perhaps as well I seek these answers elsewhere.

    The university will be able to get you in touch with current or past students. Unfortunately your post wasn't very clear and you won't find many students from that particular course on here. As you said the facts don't change whether you like them or not so looking for factual info on here or without asking specific questions won't get you very far. Good luck with your search for info. Learning to do your own basic research is key to doing well as a postgrad.
