Hi so I got accepted into my masters course and it’s completely online, no chance to meet new people just me. So basically it has no social aspect to it at all. One of the reasons I did a masters was for the social aspect. Now that the details have come out about how’s it’s going to be taught, I don’t know if I want to do it.

Do you think it’s worth possibly postponing my masters till next year? I’m really struggling with this decision as I don’t want to last days of my young adult live to be wasted. Any advice would be great please?

As a MA/MSc student, you will be expected to do more work outside of lectures/seminars, so your social life would have been different to undergrad anyway.

As I say to everyone looking to defer, do you have a plan of what you will do for the whole year if you defer?
