    Hello,
    I'm looking to applying to several masters programs in the next year related to urban design and have noticed that a lot universities only ask for 'a good degree', but what does that mean exactly?
    Some specify 2:1's or 2:2's, but what is a good degree? just a pass or a honours degree, or is it a first?
    I have a 2:1 so I'm hoping that it will be alright (unless they want a first!), but I am curious!

    One of the uni's that does this is the university of Brighton.

    Thanks for your help.

    Usually a "good degree" will be a euphemism for a 1st or 2i.

    If it isn't clear ring them up and ask them what they mean. Often for masters courses the only real entry requirement is a willingness to pay the fees.
