A Master’s or Doctorate degree can facilitate entry into the labour market or improve our employment conditions.

As we approach the end of this academic year, many students consider the possibility of continuing with their studies and specialising through postgraduate work.

While university studies prepare students to enter the labour market, a postgraduate degree provides specialisation, allows you to develop your knowledge in the areas within your field that are most attractive to you. Postgraduate studies cover all study options that will adapt to a range of profiles. Moreover, they provide a distinctly professional nature more in line with the needs of the labour market.

These postgraduate programmes allow you to study with researchers specialised in their field. In many cases, they offer the opportunity to train with nationally and internationally recognised specialists. For example, the University of Salamanca offers study programmes in the field of Spanish language learning, biosciences or cancer research with professors who not only transmit their specialised knowledge but are actively generating knowledge as well.

Postgraduate studies immediately focus on the specific needs, adapting to new trends and advances in each field, which is why so many professionals choose postgraduate studies to broaden their knowledge and update their studies.

Postgraduate studies are an excellent way to delve into the labour market in your speciality. Not only do they offer training placements to complete your studies by working in the best companies in your field, but also the benefit of the experience of your professors, many of whom are actively working in their field and thus represent an excellent source to establish professional contacts with experts in each sector.

The University of Salamanca currently offers 70 Master’s Degrees, 40 Doctorate Programmes and 129 of its own degrees which provide a complete, high quality study programme in all areas of higher education, including both sciences and humanities.
