Postgraduate and Professional

Postgraduate and Professional

Did you know that having a postgraduate qualification can increase your earning potential by £8,000*? Or that in the last UK economic crash in 2008, employment among those with postgraduate qualifications was slower to fall and faster to recover than for those with only a first degree**?
BNU is a connected university - our excellent facilities, specialist work spaces, and partnerships with employers and the local community can help you work to the best of your ability and achieve your goals. So not only will you be enhancing your skills and knowledge with a postgraduate qualification, we can also help you to stand out from the crowd and improve your employability opportunities.
