    Graduating with a degree in Business Administration in mid 2017 (approximately).
    However planning to switch career paths and pursue a Masters degree in Computer Science.
    What challenges should I expect to encounter and how could they be negated?
    Kind Regards

    the switch to computer science should be one of the easiest to make. Lots of universities offer what are designed and sold as conversion masters. Random examples...

    Whilst I have nothing concrete to add, I am a BSc maths student hoping to do a Masters in CompSci too - remember that CompSci Masters are for people who didn't study CompSci at undergrad! It'll all be okay.

    First check if you're eligible to do a masters in comp sci with your degree as you may struggle. The masters course is expected to take your knowledge further but if you haven't got the undergrad knowledge you may struggle. Contact unis and ask whether they will accept you. You may want to consider conversion courses instead.
