How we got into Graduate school: An international student guide!

Graduate studies

Graduate study is an opportunity for anyone interested in advancing their knowledge in a specialised research area or to advance their professional skill-set. It is an advanced academic degree like masters and doctoral degrees. Upon completion of an undergraduate degree, a master’s degree is typically the next step. However, it’s possible to move straight up into a doctoral degree.

Master’s degrees are usually in two types, thesis-based master’s degrees, those that focus on research and course-based master’s degrees, those that are intended to prepare you for advanced professional practice.

Every day a lot of people travel around the world to various universities for the purpose of their graduate studies. In some cases, they are sponsored by scholarship funds that could help them achieve their higher education goals. However, it is, for this reason, that initiative, “How we got into Graduate school: An international student guide.” was born.
