    Typically you do, however if you have enough experience in the field then you could potentially get onto a Masters programme and obtain a Masters Degree.

    Usually you wouldn't plan to do a masters in this way, it'd just happen after you've been in industry for so long.

    As Roving Fish said, this would be far from the norm, and would probably apply mostly to MBA-type courses for those who have been working in a particular field for quite a while. The vast majority of Master's courses require a 2.1 in your BA for entry, though some will accept 2.2s as well.

    Well I don't have a degree, and I took a MSc last year. I do have a HND and 25 years work experience though.
    I applied to several courses at a couple of Unis and was offered unconditional places at all of them, however I was told that I would not be accepted onto one course without a 2:1 so I didn't bother applying for that one.
    My advice, if you don't have the standard qualifications but do have work experience, is to ring up and talk to course tutors or course administrators for the Masters programmes you are interested in, or go along to open days and track down the relevant people to talk to. Some unis are very keen to attract mature students. One I visited had Masters programmes specially structured to fit in with the working week.
