Should I do a Master's?

A worksheet to help you figure out if a postgraduate degree is for you.

There are many benefits to doing a postgraduate degree, but it's also a big undertaking! There's cost, pressure, and time to consider. If you're just finishing up a degree it can seem like the safest option, or if you're between jobs going back to the structure of university can feel attractive.

And master's and doctorates can be amazing, enriching and invaluable experiences. But a postgraduate degree is not like undergraduate experience and you really have to want to be there, doing the work, to make the most of it.

Figuring out if it's the best course of action for you isn't the easiest - so we've made this writing exercise worksheet to help you figure it out.
