Steps to Postgraduate Study

Steps to Postgraduate Study (PGSteps) was launched in 2015 to meet the information needs of prospective PGT students. It offers information and advice for prospective students on study options, finance and other practical matters, and the benefits of study at this level. Read more about the information needs of prospective PGT students.

PGSteps is not a course comparison site – it is intended to help anyone considering PGT study to ask the right questions and find the answers they need. It can be particularly helpful for international students and for those returning to study after a break from higher education.
