    Hey there,

    does anyone know if it is possible to get into another field of study after the bachelor degree. I'm currently study economics, but could imagine to switch to science, maths, computer science etc.

    I'm aware of the fact, that this is normally not possible, but probably there are special programs at particular universities, which I haven't seen yet (e.g. two-year master degree).

    The easiest way to 'convert' to another field without sacrificing the depth and advanced level of an MSc, is IMO by studying a course that combines two fields. Oxford, for instance, offers an MSc in Mathematical and Computational Finance that is open for students with a maths related undergrad degree. That might be something of your liking. Perhaps similar courses exist that combine economics with computer science or natural sciences.

    An actual conversion course will probably not go beyond the level of an undergrad degree.

    It can be done. I have an MA in a different field to my BA and am currently doing a MSc in a totally different subject.

    Write a strong application detailing your interest in the course and why you need to do it. It is probably easier for some fields rather than others but certainly worth a shot.
