Not quite a MA, but in my experience of public health they want BScs and MScs (and these days PhDs and further professional qualifications). I'd suggest it depends what field you want to go into. But also with a PgD, I'm not sure people outside academia will particularly have heard of it, or if they have, know what it involves.[/quote]

I'll check that. Thank you.

It's not really a complete qualification - it's not a degree. Most jobs, if they want qualifications, ask for either a BA, MA or PhD.


Ughhh I had no idea since all universities in the UK count it as a Diploma.. so it is a degree some how. No?

Hello rewt,
Thank you. I'll discuss this my university career advisor in the coming days, cause missie (me) can't make up her mind! :/ I'll keep you updated.

I would echo eng77 though - get the MSc; a PgD isn't worth the paper its printed on.

What's wrong with a PgD? Is it this badly viewed? I mean, it's like a higher level BA, but with a lot of research involved.

I want to work at a university some day. Like, in admissions, or student affairs, or recruitment.
Doesn't a PgD allow me that?

Hello everyone,

I am currently enrolled in an online MSc in development management t the University of Birmingham.
Well, it has been a tough ride. I only did 2 courses last academic year, and this coming year I'll have 4 courses left, and then a dissertation. The assignments have been tough, as they are all very research based and are essays ranging from 1,500 to 3,500 words (so far). I should mention that I work full time as well.
I wake up at 4 am on weekdays & study all the weekend. It has been time consuming, to find that I only Pass the course.
The thing is: 1, I may not have enough money to carry on to the dissertation phase & 2, It seems so overwhelming, while working full time, and I'm not sure it's worth it. I feel like I want to take instead a course with the open university about exploring cultures and languages, then with the University of Bristol or Shanghai about intercultural communication- instead of putting my money in an MSc.

Should I go for a PgD (which is basically the MSc courses, but without the dissertation), and enjoy doing other courses & visit my university OR put the money I have left into carrying on my MSc?
Also, my ambition is to have a carrier in universities (admissions/student affairs/giving elective courses lectures/ect.)

I'm very torn between both.

Thank you for reading. I appreciate your advice!
