    Hello there,
    im not from the UK and doing my bachelor of engineering degree. As i saw on the website of Oxford, most courses are 4 years long. One has the possibility to make a bachelor degree after three years but usually stays for the forth one when one gets the master degree. Is there a way to join a course only for the 4th year with a bachelor degree to get a master degree?

    The four year courses in science subjects are undergraduate masters courses resulting in a specific qualification ie in engineering it would be MEng (masters of engineering). The fourth year is only available to undergraduates staying on after completing the first three years.

    If you have a bachelors degree already, you would apply for a postgraduate masters degree (generally an MSc for science subjects) in the area you are interested in. For engineering there is the MSc in Engineering Science (by research) which is a 2 year course: https://www.ox.ac.uk/admissions/grad...science?wssl=1

    No, because it's an integrated masters degree. These are four-year degrees in which you graduate with a master's-level qualification (i.e. you're an undergraduate during the entire duration of the degree). As the user above said, if you already have a BEng or equivalent, you should apply to do a normal masters degree (usually a MSc).
