Great question! If you are thinking about pursuing graduate school, consider asking yourself these questions:
- Why do I want to go to graduate school?
- Is what I want to go to graduate school for relevant? Is this a good investment?
- Would going to graduate school further my career?
- Is this something I can afford to do? Would I be able to finance this?
- Are the skills and experience you desire only available to you through graduate school? Or could you gain the same experiences and skills working in your field?
If your answers to these questions justify your decision more then consider it! Since graduate school is a big investment, take as much time as you need to think over these things. This shouldn't be a decision that's made overnight.
Also, consider taking some time in between college and graduate school to do some exploring! Real-world job experience is a very valuable tool to have and will also help guide your decision in whether you should pursue graduate school. Hope this helps and best of luck to you!
Whatever you decide with your heart will be the best decision. Best of everything!
because PG studies are always a deeper learning or specialization into a particular field. Most of the PG studies are pursued more with practical activities like more lab sessions, projects etc rather than just getting theoretical knowledge. But most importantly the quality of education will also depend on the quality of Institute we get admission and guide staffs available.
There is never an end for learning. As you know it's a continuous process. So it would always be helpful if you do your PG.
If you have the real passion for learning please go ahead with the plan and do not delay the things.
I did my PG after 9 years of graduation. It definitely helped me to improve on my career. The only thing I regret is for delaying it for so many years.
So its better to do it as soon as you are done with your graduation.
This may vary from person to person.
From my point i regret having wasted my time for Masters as my Graduation college did not provide good placement. If i would have got it first hand i would have not opted for Masters. Usually same things are thought in Masters most of the time. Usually Masters should be add on to what you have learnt in graduation but usually this is not the case.
According to me you can have two options:
If you are interested in research or want a good placement apply for Masters in Good University.
If Good Placement/Research is not your priority then try getting a job and then elevate in your career by acquisition of different skills, opportunities etc.
In life some people strive hard for satisfaction some for money. Depends on you, what you want.
Best of Luck!!
Post-Grad really depends on what you enjoy about your studies and what you'd like for a career. It's a great way to narrow your focus and will definitely help you while job searching.
