    hey, i have two questions about postgraduate study that i hope you guys can help with,

    1st, is there some sort of funding for postgraduate funding similar to the undergrad one? like based on your family income?

    also, does the 'subject' u want to study at postgrad level need to be related to your undergraduate degree?

    hope you guys can help


    to 1:
    I most probably cannot give you the best advice here, but for outstanding students with an excellent academic recorde there are always funding opportunities. I'd check-out the relevant university's website. you may find some information there.

    to 2:
    generally the two subjects do not need to be related. although you probably can imagine that if you have an undergrad degree in arts they wont let you study mathematics at postgrad level.
    but I have heard of some people who studied law and then subsequently did a masters in management, but this differes among universities.

    ditto. funding exists but its hard to get since its often linked to phds (though not always) and everyone wants a free degee. some departments have funding to give, but it depends on the subject and university. banks sometimes loan lots to postgrads. you can go into another field, but not always. conversion courses exist in psychology, law etc if you wish to work in a specific profession.
