Student Profile(s)

Karl Musty

Karl Musty studied MA Graphic Communication at the University of South Wales.

“I wanted to continue study at postgraduate level, so decided to progress onto the MA Graphic Communication. The course is closely related to photography and something I’m really interested in. I’m hoping the additional skills attained in the postgraduate qualification will increase my employability, as the nature of the creative industries is tending to favour those with multidisciplinary skills. I consider a postgraduate qualification to be valuable in the very competitive jobs market we have today.

I’m hoping to go onto a PGCE qualification and eventually be proficient in teaching both disciplines, further increasing my employability status.

My advice to any student wishing to progress to postgraduate study would be to take full advantage of the scholarships and bursaries available. I believe, a postgraduate course is worth the financial hardship (for just a year) to attain the ever more desirable postgraduate qualification and the added skills required in the employment market today.”
