Abstract

This research investigates the decision making process and the deterrents for undergraduate students continuing on to postgraduate (PG) research degrees and masters programmes with research elements within them.

The project examined, using quantitative and qualitative data analysis, the factors that affect students’ decisions to undertake a postgraduate (PG) qualification following their undergraduate qualifications in higher education. It explored if there were any significant differences between student groups (such as traditional vs. non-traditional students) and their intentions and experience of studying at postgraduate level.
