Again, we advise that you make enquiries before enrolling in any institution for postgraduate programme. You should premise your decision on factors such as speed/programme duration, staff strength/quality for PG programme, fees, facilities, and academic staff attitude to work. Possibly you could consider proximity, depending on the kind of employment you have. You will be shocked that you might spend donkey years studying a programme meant to last for 18 months due to anybody these factors. Ask questions before picking up the PG form. Don’t get too excited and end up flying down a bottomless academic pit.
