Find out how to change direction and explore a new subject with a postgraduate degree.
What are they?
Postgraduate study could be your opportunity to change direction and explore a new subject, or gain the qualifications you need to pursue a professional career you might not have considered before.
Conversion courses are designed to prepare you for a career unrelated to your undergraduate degree, and are available in a range of subject areas, including law, management, marketing, property, IT, journalism, psychology and teaching.

I was doing Sport Science and working at Urban Outfitters. I realised I had this underlying passion for clothing and fashion, so I decided to take the risk and study fashion, which I'm glad I ended up doing.
