Study at postgraduate level is about independence, confidence and insight. It brings a person to a new place! Gaining a postgraduate qualification not only enables one to have a new horizon on their discipline, it also offers new work horizons—postgrads work in better jobs with better prospects—as well as new life horizons.Prof. Séamus O'Connell, Director of Post-Graduate Studies
