    I have been fortunate enough to have a graduate job offer already. It has the option of a part sponsored master programme. I need help choosing which option would be best:
    1. Work for 3 months after graduation, then do a full time MSc starting in late 2016 with half sponsorship.
    2. Work for 9 months after graduation, then do a full time MSc starting in early 2017 with half sponsorship.
    3. Work full-time after graduations, with one day a week day release. Salary pro rata, but no sponsorship.

    Please say any advice you have? Especially if you have done part time degree studies. Thanks

    2nd option without a doubt.

    Just out of curiosity did you do a placement year with this company?

    Can I ask your reasoning please?

    Yes I did, and received a job offer, but I have turned that company down in favour for this other opportunity

    Ahh, I thought so.

    The reasoning is quite simple. 9 months is a good amount of time to accumulate decent industry experience (whilst getting paid too) then on top of this they will half sponsor you as well so it is the best of both worlds really

    I agree (2) sounds best. Will you graduate with a BEng?
