In this article, we give you seven compelling reasons for studying a postgraduate course at CUNEF:
Specialisation marks a difference: university studies provide very general knowledge which is extremely useful when deciding which part of the course you enjoyed with a view to developing your professional career, but from that moment on, specialising by studying a postgraduate course is essential.
