Hey, I want to apply for a masters course but I don't exactly meet the requirements. My undergraduate grade exceeds the requirements but the subject area does not. They list maths, computer science and engineering as the compulsory subjects but I don't have any of these, rather my degree is in international relations and law. I have one relevant work experience in a related field. I'm wondering if you guys think it is worth applying. I've been trying to contact the university for the past 3 weeks but it's like talking to a brick wall because they don't seem to answer me, or the one time they did, they gave an unclear answer. It costs £75 to apply to this university and there are other universities that offer my course for my requirements, but I live near this university and it's a really good uni, so I feel tempted to give it a shot. I'm also a broke uni student so I don't want to pay £75 to get rejected under the notion that I did not take the subject requirements seriously. What do you guys think?
Would I be right in assuming this masters course involves a good amount of university level maths and/or computer science? Can you demonstrate in your application that you are similarity skilled?
If not, you may not get an offer unless the masters is really undersubscribed.
Are they hosting an open day soon? See if you can attend one and find someone to chat to, or try contacting the course leader directly and enquire about applying (they may have their contact details on the course page on the university website). Keep at it!
