As there are a number of people on FHC who have done/doing Postgraduate courses (isint Yuto a lecturer or something?) I figure this would be a good place in asking the pros and cons of myself undertaking a Masters in International Politics or something along those lines. I did some quick googling but most on the info is U.S. specific and I don't know how it relates to Australia.
Also what can you tell me about going into Academia as a career? I admit it is not probable for me atm but just exploring my options.
