    Hey guys just wondering if anyone has applied or is currently doing the Mhist. Any advice or information to give?

    When I rang up they said I'm going for an interview they are just getting dates before they update my ucas track. But when I looked up this course it said that there is no interviews for this course.

    With my a levels I don't meet the requirements but I did do some undergraduate study while I loved in canada for a couple years.

    OP: nothing to offer, sorry - but I'm curious, are there any benefits to doing an integrated masters in history (or any humanities subject)? Or is the university just after more money?

    I'd say so. After the four years you graduate with a masters but with the benefit of undergraduate funding. I've been waiting ages ( im 25) to go to uni and got caught out with student fees when I came back from canada. So I had to wait another two years to apply. I think Manchester did it at one time but now the only other uni that does it is trinity st David in wales.

    I wouldn't do it. By the time you reach your fourth year, your objectives may be very different. The fourth year is also usually devoted to a research work; what if nobody among the faculty can supervise you?

    It's much safer to do a BA.

    That's is true but when I lived in canada normal BA's are 4 years anyway and Sandwich placement years are 4 too. I'm not sure if you have the option to pull out in the 3rd year with a BA it's the 4th year you do the masters. You go straight onto it with no break, I really hope my lecturers are supportive though....never thought of that.

    If you start on a integrated masters you can almost always change your mind within the first 2 years and go for the BA instead.
