Postgraduate education includes Master's, PhD, specialty in medicine and proficiency in art after the undergraduate education. Postgraduate education is a high-level education program that provides a specialization in the field of science in which students are interested following a four-year undergraduate program in faculties. Teachers also continue their postgraduate education in order to improve themselves and to make a professional contribution. The purpose of this study is to determine the difficulties encountered by teachers who are continuing their graduate education. The research group consists of 29 teachers working in Ministry of National Education and continued master’s with thesis education in 2017-2018 academic years, and they were selected with purposeful sampling. In the study, the qualitative research method was used. The data collection tool consisted of the personal information protocol and the interview form consisting of 5 open-ended questions developed by the researcher. In the presentation of the data, the frequency and percentage values of the personal information of the participants were tabulated. As a result of the study, it was determined that the participants had problems such as the distance between the university and the school, the training being a tiring process, the problem of attendance and the inadequacy of the incentives to complete the education and the inadequacy of the rights given in the case of the completion of the education.
