n i direct government servicesOnce you’ve got it, your higher education qualification could open up plenty of career options - or pave the way for postgraduate study.
What options are available to graduates?

Higher education and your career

n i direct government servicesYour choice of career might be a key reason in deciding whether to go into higher education and what course to take. Look at the different options available, and focus on what you think is best for your future.
Research your career
Going into higher education can open up new career options, and choosing which course and career is right for you can be an exciting process. It's an opportunity to look at what kind of person you are, what kind of life you want and how you can achieve your goals in the real world.
Before making any career decisions you should research the following areas to make sure you make a successful career choice:

  • skills and entry requirements
  • options with your subjects/qualifications
  • are there jobs in the area you are considering
  • employment trends – where the jobs are now and likely to be in the future
  • vacancies that employers find hard to fill
  • where jobs are advertised
  • Job trends

Higher education and your career prospects
Higher education helps you develop qualities that employers value, such as problem-solving and communication skills. By doing a higher education course you will increase your chances of getting a job and earning more money.
A higher education qualification is necessary for some careers - such as medicine, dentistry, chartered engineering and architecture. For some professions - like law or speech therapy- you will need an additional postgraduate qualification before you can practise.
Exploring your career options
If you decide to go on to higher education you need to make sure the course you take best suits what you want to do with your life.
The Careers Service can offer you free impartial information, advice and guidance on the career options available.

Choosing a course to suit your career plans
Selecting the best possible course for you is a key career decision to make, and often a challenging one. There can be intense competition for the most popular courses, and later for graduate jobs. There are tens of thousands of courses, and the same title of course will not be taught in the same way, or cover the same material, at every university offering it.
Course accreditation from professional bodies
Some professions approve or accredit related courses. If you're looking to pursue a career in a particular area, check your course is one of those approved by the relevant body. Every institution should be able to give you this information.

Changing your career direction through higher education
You don't need to have academic qualifications to go into higher education. Some universities are prepared to accept life and work experience as an alternative to formal qualifications. They may take your work experience into account if you apply to do an Access course, a foundation course or foundation year.

Finding out more about graduate careers
If you have decided on, or are thinking about, a particular higher education course, you may want to:explore the graduate job market in your chosen field and find out about salaries for particular jobs

n i direct government servicesHigher education gives you the chance to study a subject you are interested in and boost your career prospects and earnings potential. If you are thinking of higher education, help and support is available.
Reach higher - is higher education right for you?
No matter what your age or background is, or if you don't know anyone else in higher education, it could still be the right choice for you. You can take a higher education course at a university, higher education college or at some further education colleges.

Why go to university or college?
Higher education could benefit you in a number of ways. University or college lets you experience a rich cultural and social scene, meet different people and study something you are really interested in. A higher education qualification can lead to increased earning potential, a wider range of opportunities, and a more rewarding career.

How much is it going to cost?
The cost of higher education can vary depending on where you study and the length of courses. Financial support is available, so money needn’t be a barrier. The help you can get depends on your family income and the type of course you’re doing. Universities and colleges also offer support and bursaries so contact them directly to find out what they offer.
