    In Scotland degrees are a year longer and arts degrees are called MA. In England, you'll need to do a BA first and then apply for a masters course that is typically a further year.

    If a university offers a bachelors degree it will almost certainly offer a masters as well.

    A conventional Masters degree is a *postgraduate degree*.

    Scottish Unis and now some English Unis are offering 4 year undergraduate degrees which are confusing given 'M' titles - but they are *not* postgraduate degrees. From posts on TSR it is clear that many applicants are thinking like you that these courses are the same as having a postgrad Masters degree. They arent.

    Only undergraduate degrees are applied for via UCAS. For postgrad you apply individually to each separate Uni.

    Hi naseem hossen,

    You might be looking in the wrong place. UCAS is mostly for Undergraduate courses, many universities in England offer French Masters.

    Kent for example has a great Modern French studies MA, where you can even spend a term studying in Paris.

    Here's a link: http://www.kent.ac.uk/secl/french/po...dies%20MA.html

    The best thing to do if you already know that you want to continue on to a Masters in French, but not go too far, is to look at universities in London and the South East and see what they offer.

    We're located just 15 minutes from Dover where you can get the ferry over to France, Ashford International is 20 minutes away where you can hop on the Eurostar to Paris, and 22% of our students are from overseas (including many French students) which all gives you a great start with your french studies.

    Hope this helps,

    Kayleigh
