Finding further study opportunities

Finding further study opportunities

There are a number of online databases you can use to search for courses and research opportunities.  You can find links to the most important in our UK study resources.

You can also search our resources for professional bodies, such as the British Psychological Society, Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development and Royal Town Planning Institute, which have lists of accredited postgraduate courses.

International opportunities

Studying overseas can be a great opportunity but it takes a lot of careful planning. Most of the questions posed in further study and research options still apply but there are also some other factors you will need to consider such as the language in which the course is taught, visa regulations and any other restrictions.

Entry requirements can vary from country to country and some institutions may require you to sit additional tests such as the Graduate Record Exam (GRE) or Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT) which is common for MBAs. It is also essential to research how universities work in other countries (when does the academic year begin? How are programmes of study organised?).
