    Hi,
    I can't answer as I'm starting an MSc in September so hoping you get some replies :-)

    This article was quite interesting:

    Thank you for the helpful link! I will admit, I could have used a better thread name which might have gotten more replies. All the best for your MSc

    Mine was less stressful than the final year of my undergraduate degree. I also enjoyed it a lot more as it was focused on a specific area I was genuinely interested in.

    As for 'getting the most out' of the course - think about what you want to do once it's over and focus on activities which will help with that (internships? networking? job applications? PhD applications?) alongside the academic workload. Good luck, it's a lot less stressful than people seem to make out here on TSR!
