Bachelors or Masters? Watch
I just made a post relevant to this, then when searching it I found yours. Do the Master's, it's easier and it's deemed as a better qualification... https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho...sters%20easier
It's easier because you only need an average of 40% on that master's year and you will have acquired a better qualification than someone who has worked thier arse off trying to achieve a first in 3 years. It's weird, I know, I wish somebody could explain this to me.
I think there are some massive confusions going on in this thread - unless I've missed something.
A Bachelors degree is a prerequisite to doing a Masters degree in anything other than very specific circumstances.
The more common incidence is the integrated or undergraduate Masters. That's the MSci, MEng mentioned above. There, you apply through the undergrad process, but can automatically get on an undergrad course that leads to the masters year. You don't actually graduate from the Bachelors element, you proceed directly to the Masters element.
Very, very occasionally, if you've got very substantial professional experience, a university will allow you to do a Masters if you don't have an undergraduate degree. But you'd need 15+ years of working, several published books etc, ie a substantial record of achievement in the same area.
Otherwise, the standard process is to apply for a Bachelors degree, send 3 years doing that, then separately apply for a standalone Masters degree and end up with 2 degrees.
