See your future in a different light

What will you do when you graduate? You'll have a lot of options to consider when you finish your degree, but it doesn't have to end there. Study a postgraduate course at UEL and enjoy all the benefits of staying in education.

  • Specialise
    If you enjoyed your undergraduate course and are passionate about the subject you study, why not get to know it better and deepen your knowledge?
  • Postgraduates typically earn £200,000 more over their working life, averaging an extra £5,500 each year (Sutton Trust). An additional degree gives you a real advantage in the job market and helps you get the roles that might otherwise be out of reach.
  • Alumni discount
    If you go on to study a postgraduate course at UEL after completing your first degree here, you'll receive a 15% discount on fees. To make education even more accessible, you can also take out postgraduate loans of up to £10,000 and apply for one of UEL's Postgraduate Scholarships, offering a further 50% discount on tuition fees.
  • Stay at UEL
    You've already spent a few years here, getting to know your tutors, your friends and your home from home. Take a postgraduate course and you'll stay a part of the UEL community, while meeting new people and new challenges along the way.
