Reflecting on my MSc education experience: Are postgraduate degrees worth it?



Choosing whether education beyond an undergraduate degree is for you, could be a choice that you will have to face. Maybe you have already thought about postgraduate studies but were hesitant, maybe you have made a decision or perhaps the thought of studying an MSc course has not even crossed your mind yet. This is where I come in to play (*evil laugh*). I'm here to tell you all about my postgraduate education experience. The ups, the downs, whether it was worth it. 

DISCLAIMER: Some of my points might not apply to all courses or universities. No course is ever run in the same way. A lot of it is down to the organisation of the staff who are in charge. Sometimes organisation can be lame, which can cause a lot of issues. That's why you need to remember to do your research before you commit to anything.

Sitting down to write a post has been a challenge for me. It's silly, because all it takes is typing some words on the screen. I've posted a few posts based on psychological advise and hopefully they have helped or inspired some of you. As a person, I rarely open up about my own problems, as I don't really see much point to it. However, I don't want to feel distanced from what I write or feel like a fraud or some kind of an impostor. In this post, I am embracing my open thoughts about something that has been on my mind for a long time:

The impact of others' expectations on our identity and well-being.
