Members of the public interested in finding out more about studying a Masters can learn all about it at an event being held at Shropshire’s Harper Adams University.
The ’Should I do a Masters?’ event is being held in the Regional Food Academy at the university in Edgmond, near Newport, on May 8 from 6.30pm for a 7pm start.
The evening, which will include a free buffet, wine and soft drinks, will kick-off with an illustrated talk giving an introduction to postgraduate study.
Lecturers and current postgraduate students will also be on hand to give information and advice. They will be able to answer questions about courses on offer, the benefits of postgraduate study, financial options and learning flexibility, including the ability to study while working full-time.
Alex Hardie, Postgraduate Marketing Manager, said: “The event is a new venture giving current students, industry partners and members of the public the chance to find out how postgraduate courses at Harper Adams University can help your career.
“By meeting our course lecturers and existing postgraduate students, those attending will also learn more about careers in agriculture, food, animals, land management, engineering, countryside and more.
“Postgraduate study is not only an option for those who have just completed postgraduate study but also for industry professionals looking to progress their career, lifelong learners looking for an academic challenge and anybody looking for a career change.
“We have a wide range of postgraduate students at Harper Adams, from the UK and overseas, of all ages and backgrounds.
“Importantly, around two thirds of our postgraduate students choose to study part-time balancing academic study for MScs, PgCs and PgDs alongside their jobs.”
Harper Adams’ portfolio of postgraduate courses has expanded to meet the developments and demands of rural industries across the globe.
The university’s taught postgraduate courses, underpinned by nationally and internationally recognised research, have been created to help students develop the skill, knowledge and experience to enhance their career opportunities.
