Andrew's perspective

'Having a PhD in Physics made finding a job after graduation relatively simple. It was apparent that the PhD is valued increasingly highly by employers.

'With so many more undergraduates with good degrees coming onto the labour market the PhD gives a significant edge in applications for graduate posts or schemes.

'In addition, most companies pay a premium to PhD graduates, and there’s usually room for negotiating better terms. The PhD is an investment in your future career - having been at work for a year now, it is obvious that my company at least is targeting PhD and Masters graduates.'
