    Hi,

    I'm a final year undergrad and would like to start a Master's in September this year.

    When do people typically apply for Master's courses? I know the deadline is in the summer but I don't want to leave it that late since there might not be any places left. On the other hand, if I apply now I haven't got any grades to show my academic performance.

    Thanks.

    For LSE/Oxbridge/UCL most people tend to apply at the start of their final year as places fill up quickly. You don't need final year grades, you'll get a conditional offer on the basis of your previous years.

    Applications are still open so apply now as soon as possible.

    You'll be given a conditional offer if the uni wants to take you but only with a particular grade, just like when you apply to undergraduate courses.

    I recommend applying to masters courses as soon as you can because then you'll widen your options in terms of courses where places may fill up fast.
