Why study an Honours or Masters at Flinders?

According to the Employment Outlook to May 2024, jobs requiring an honours or masters degree are projected to increase by 11.8 percent to 2024. In today’s increasingly competitive job market, the benefits will help you differentiate yourself while also remaining a valuable employee.

Earning an honours or masters degree helps you gain specialised knowledge to advance in your field.

You can focus on a particular field of study that you love, which helps you become more competitive in your field. The benefits can also help you build on your current abilities, gain new skills, or even transition to an entirely new field.

An honours or masters degree can make it easier to transition into more senior positions, such as management and leadership. Many organisations not only recognise the benefits, but even prefer their employees to have a graduate degree. In certain industries, such as engineering, computer science, medicine, science or information technology, postgraduate degrees offer mandatory training and the best path for certain jobs or promotions.

By earning a postgraduate degree, you can significantly increase your income, with an average earnings of around $1,600 per week. In certain fields, you will find that with a masters degree you will earn even more than those with an honours degree – due to the it being more specialised.

There are multiple benefits to an honours or masters degree, including improving your professional skills such as researching, writing, and analysis.
