    Hi there,

    I have done Bachelors in Software Engineering. Although I am finishing it with distinction, but I don't feel confident enough in Software Engineering and do not wish to do job in Software Engineering.

    So, I am am planning to do masters in a different field. For example;
    1. International Business Management
    2. Business Administration
    3. Human Resource (HR)

    However, these are not related to my BSc, specially HR. However, I don't feel like working as a coder anywhere. So, I wanna specialise in something else. I have deep passion in 'film making' as well and pursue it as a hobby.

    So, I mean to ask, what course is good for me? Like, closest possible to my field..
    I am international student (non-EU) as well, so I don't know if UK Embassy would trouble me for changing course or career path?

    I'd appreciate your any sort of help and productive input.
    Regards

    I don't know about possible courses you can take that are related to your degree but I was considering doing a Physics Masters with a Chemistry degree, which may seem similar, but according to most unis they're not
    Anyway, my plan was to self teach myself some of the course material using the website EdX or Coursera, they do podcasts from uni lectures from different unis, (e.g MIT, Harvard, Manchester, Cambridge) with online homework and stuff and at the end of a course you can pay to get a certificate to certify that you've completed that course, they have a range of courses so will most likely have yours, I don't know if this would get you on the course as I've not looked into too much and its credibility, but thought it was worth you knowing encase it is.

    For your transition from eng to business, it would be conducive to gain at least 2 yrs professional employment. You can transfer your prof experience at Business School. I don't see many eng in HRM, but plenty work in general management, project management, sales, consulting and tech marketing.

    So, you suggest that business management would be fine?

    It depends on your skills and goals. Generally engineers are well respected in business management and bring useful skills to the table. Analytical, planning and operational skills. A MSc management would be like a conversion course and allows you to learn more about finance, marketing and managing organisations.

    You can also look into graduate programs, as they often only demand, that you have a degree. But also without it should not be impossible to find a job, where you can move away from coding with your degree. Someone studying English Literature is also not bound to working in Literature, the same counts for you. So it won't hurt to try to get directly in those fields. That also helps to find out, what you really want to do and then you can do a Master after some years tailored to your specific needs or you may find out, you need no Master at all.
