Can you do two PGs back-to-back if you defer one and accept the other?

So I have three PG offers for Newcastle. I like being in academia, and I've realised I'm a bit torn between them. If I ordered my top two, is there anything stopping me deferring one and accepting the other so I basically did one this academic year and then went straight into the other? Obviously there is funding issues, as certain funds aren't accessible if you attain a Master's, but before I evaluate the feasibility of whether or not I could fund two degrees, would there be any other issues or things stopping one from doing this?

Apart from funding, there may be overlaps regarding academic year dates/dissertation deadlines.

Would that just be something I would have to juggle personally, or would it cause issues with the University?

It could potentially cause issues, as they may not allow you to be enrolled on two courses of the same level at the same time. E.g. my masters degree was from mid September to the end of the following September, so there would be at least 2 weeks overlapping if your dates are similar.

Good shout, I will check to see if I can find this out anywhere. Thank you!
