    Good Morning everyone.
    I'm about to finish my undergraduate degree in Business Administration in Italy. I should (fingers crossed) graduate with a 110/110 which is the equivalent of a first or a good 2:1.
    But I honestly want to study something completely different the next year and I was thinking about Classical Studies. Now, I've heard that a lot of people have taken different postgrad degree from their BA, but I honestly want to know a couple of things.

    1) Is it indeed possible to switch field? How is it going to work? I've read that some Uni will accept people from different backgrounds for their MA, provided that you pass some undergad course as "fillers".

    2) Say I'd want to go ahead and do a PHD after this MA, in Classics. Is not having a BA in the same field going to hurt my resume? Therefore, do you suggest I start again from a BA?

    Thanks in advance for all your replies, I honestly have no clue on what to do.
