Alright, so not completely unrelated - but they're a bit different.

I have a degree in Classics from Durham (a first) which I went to instead of Scandinavian Studies and Classics from Edinburgh when I was deciding which degree to go for (I love both norse and classics, but it was the reputation of Durham vs Edinburgh that did it for me). I now want to do Scandinavian Studies as my Masters - can I do that? It's a very niche course and Classics is somewhat related. All of the masters' programmes I'm looking at say they want 'a subject to adequately prepare for norse and viking studies MA' so would classics do the job? Thanks in advance.

Yes - people have gone from Chemistry BSc to Chemical Engineering MSc

Others have also gone from Physics BSc or Engineering BEng to Computer Science MSc

So I am 99% sure you can - best assurance is to ring admissions

Chances are during the application process you'll have an interview and an opportunity to fill out a personal statement - if you can use those opportunities to show that you already have some knowledge of the area, and you've got transferrable skills that will apply to Scandi-studies, I'm sure you'll be fine!
