    Hey,

    I want to do an undergraduate degree in Economics and Politics, assuming I get at least a 2:1, does this mean I will be able to do a Masters in Economics or something related like Finance and Economics, as the entry requirements state that the undergraduate degree needs to have "significant Economics/quantitative content", any advice would be appreciated thanks!

    If your undergrad degree is in economics then it will have substantive economics content. What you're talking about is for people who don't have a degree in economics. When you come to applying you can always email the uni to check.

    yeahh i just realised - called up nottingham they said it should be fine, but if not i can take a 9 month conversion course if i have to, in order to prepare for the math content in the masters. its a bit expensive like £9k, then £10k or whatever for the masters, but I think i'll be a UK citizen by then, can you get student loan for a masters course? i won't be able to get one for my undergrad since im not a UK citizen atm, but i will be by then..

    All these ifs and buts are not going to get you anywhere at this point as things are very fluid and can change. If you were applying for a masters as a UK citizen now then yes you'd be eligible for a loan but that's not the case so I suggest you worry about what's happening now and worry about what'll happen later when the time comes. It's good that you have a plan but you are dependent on how things are when you come to applying.

    Yep i understand that, just want to make sure i have some direction or idea of what to do/expect later i guess, of course things will change in 4 years but there will likely by similarities
