In the UK, getting a place on a master's degree with a good 2.1 is relatively straightforward (as long as you are not heading for Oxbridge). It's getting funding which is tricky. International study is a whole different ball game; you will need to look on the websites of the unis you are interested in and have a look at their entry requirements. In the US for example, its likely you would have to take further entrance exams to get in.
Is getting into Oxbridge for most of their Masters courses quite hard then?

The stats seem to suggest 50% acceptance rate. Is that good or bad?

Depends which Master's. For mine the acceptance rate was around 3.5% (around fifteen out of just over 400).

I see. Was interested in History and Russian Studies which I think are 100/260 and 25/50 respectively.

I don't think you can stay there without submitting a separate visa application as your student visa will only last the duration of your studies.
If I've graduated from the US, surely there's more chance of me getting a permanent visa though?

Yes I imagine so, but the point is they don't want foreign nationals coming to study in the US purely so that they can subsequently live there.

Obviously that's not purely why I'd want to do it, otherwise I'd just apply for a visa. I just don't like the idea of having to move back to the UK after I've been there.
