The story of postgraduate education in the UK in the late 1990s and early 2000s is, to a very great extent, the story of the success of universities in expanding masters-level qualifications.
Students with postgraduate qualifications in 2002-03 enjoyed an average premium of 28 per cent after six months compared with first-degree graduates, although this may reflect the professional focus of postgraduate courses, which is likely to mean that fewer postgraduates spend time in casual or low-status employment immediately after graduating.
Postgraduate qualifications, therefore, are likely to be valuable in the job market if they indicate the possession of specific skills and knowledge, but not as an indicator of general ability.

 HEFCE : Publications : 1996 : M 14/96 - Review of Postgraduate Education
There are, however, many specialist areas of pg education which would require detailed study in their own right, or a much longer period of investigation to encompass them adequately, and as a result we chose to focus on all subjects in general terms, rather than on any in detail.
In the private realm, pg education in all its forms serves the needs of individuals, it stimulates their minds, and enables them to learn new skills and acquire new knowledge, and to develop intellectual and cultural appreciation - and by all these means to enhance their chances of a rewarding and personally satisfying life.
We recognise that there is already a very significant private contribution to pg education through the payment of fees, particularly in the case of pgt education which serves vocational objectives, and we believe that this is appropriate given the purposes of pg education, and the private benefits it affords.
