As you use the course finder facility to search for the courses available at UM, the likelihood is that a number of questions will be racing through your mind: Where do I go from here? Which course should I choose? What will I get out of it? How many career opportunities may present themselves once I complete the course successfully?
More often than not, the answers to questions like these can be found by discussing your career aspirations with your nearest and dearest as well as with professionals in the particular field or sector you are interested in. For some of you, the way forward has always been clear.
For others, however, the process of distinguishing which path to take requires more thought. It can also happen that, even after completing a course, some may remain unsure what to do next. In itself, this is not necessarily a bad thing because it may serve as a springboard to be creative and use the skills acquired and apply them in different circumstances.
In the fast and ever-changing globalised world we live in, matching graduates’ qualifications and skills to the demands of the working world calls for you to keep an open and creative mind. The years spent at UM should not be just about acquiring academic credentials, but most importantly, about being open to learning experiences that provide opportunities to link such credentials to particular interests and realities.
A good balance of academic credentials, flexibility and a willingness to explore new grounds could be a winning formula towards a fulfilling career that will give you the chance to be a catalyst for change, and ensure success for yourself and for society at large.
At UM you can rest assured that you will find the support you need as you start your journey towards the discovery of knowledge and the fulfilment of your aspirations.
