    Is it too late to apply for masters? I am primarily targeting universities in other countries, but I am thinking about using universities in the UK as a backup plan, as they are less strict on the application than other universities. Most universities here only require a 2.1 and some general entry requirements for the subject you are studying.

    For competitive courses yep too late, generally however- no. Plenty of unis will consider you if you apply feb/march.

    Yea but what percentage of people can get in to those Universities even if they apply in the fall? I started a week ago and just finished all 17 of my applications yesterday. (I already got offers from Strathclyde, Newcastle, and Stirling for Marketing) I even emailed a bunch of Universities and asked if the selection process gets more competitive as time passes and they all said no. As long as there are spots left, your chances are the same. I literally researched every University in the UK in the top 50 for Marketing and the only course that was closed was at Surrey.

    Those four universities usually have between 25-50 places and all spaces are normally filled around feb-March. However applications will still be open well into July. This is to place candidates on waiting lists should students holding offers fail to meet the conditions or reject the place then those wait listed will be considered.

    Bigger less competitive courses (the cash cows) will obviously still have spaces even at the elite unis.
