Hey, I've recently been going over different pathways for what to do after I graduate and I've decided postgraduate study seems like my best option at the moment.

Of all the courses, Msc Marketing stands out the most to me due to the nature of the course and prospect of working for a multinational company which would allow me to use my language skills.

The point of this post is concerning the entry requirements for the course, in particular at King's where the information page for Msc International Marketing states potential candidates would need either a 1st or 2:1 in a social science related area "e.g. management, economics, psychology, history, sociology, law or other appropriate social science subject".

Currently, I'm studying History and French at the University of Birmingham and would like to know whether doing my joint honours course would put me at a disadvantage compared to those who did single honours history for example.

Secondly, on the pages which don't specify preference of disciplines, would I have a chance of getting a place on the course?

Any feedback would be appreciated, thanks!

You will almost certainly not be at a disadvantage doing joint honours, but you could contact unis directly to ask them. Good luck!

but most uni for marketing don't require any specific degrees (at least from what i researched on)

I did my degree in Canada in Classics honours and got offers from CASS and Imperial for MSc Marketing. Just have to know how to spin it in your personal statment! I said Classics had helped because of understanding culture and social implications. Language was important for understanding how word usage can completely change how something enters a market.

You would be fine for MSc Marketing or MSc Marketing (Communications) at Manchester Metropolitan University - these do not require you to have specialised in a relevant subject at ug level. They are quite applied courses, with an in-depth digital unit needed to be credible to a future employer, and a unit where you work with a client on a live brief.
