Here are some of the best and most popular master degree programmes in the world.
Key points:There are more than a million master degrees in the UK each year, according to the UK Statistics AuthoritySource: The UK Statistics AgencySource: Getty ImagesThere are now more than 2.5 million masters degrees in science and technology in the country, according a report released this month by the UK statistics authority.
In the first half of 2018, there were an estimated 2.9 million masters degree degrees, the UK Statistician’s report said.
It said the number of masters degrees completed had risen by about 40 per cent over the previous five years, with the average completion time of around seven years.
The report also found that more people were completing master degrees than in any previous period in history.
The UK Statistics Association (UKSA) said the increase in master degrees was “the result of the continuing rise in the number and variety of occupations in which a degree is required”.
“The demand for this type of degree has continued to rise as more people are seeking the skills they need to work in highly skilled occupations and the skills of those who hold the degree,” it said.
“The UK has an impressive record of supporting the economy and creating new jobs, but it is important to note that more than two million jobs remain unfilled and we will be looking to continue this trend in the coming years.”‘
A great opportunity’Master degrees have been on the rise for a long time, with many people seeking a career in the sciences and technology.
In 2017, the first quarter of 2019 saw the number rise by 2.1 per cent to 2.3 million, with employers expecting a slight increase in the second quarter.
The increase in degree completion over the past five years was driven by a number of factors, including the emergence of more jobs for those with a degree, the increased number of graduates entering the workforce and an increase in employers seeking new graduates.
It was also a time when employers were looking to hire people with an advanced degree, such as engineers and scientists, as well as those who already had a degree.
There were also many more applications for masters degrees, with universities and employers wanting to see that their graduates had a range of skills, from working in highly specialized areas, such in engineering, to working as consultants.’
Innovative’Master programmes are also being designed to prepare students for careers in other fields.
In 2018, the number rose by almost 5 per cent, with more than 10,000 new degrees in development, including one in healthcare and health care management.
More and more of the university degrees are aimed at those with advanced degrees, such to computer programming, electrical engineering and maths.
There are also a number that are aimed towards people with less advanced degrees such as business, law and health, as they are not yet recognised as such.
