Hello ,

So info:This doesn’t really apply to me but I just got randomly curious because I used to have a teacher a couple of years ago who had 3 masters .In psychology ,biology and Education (He was very smart a genius tbh ,we got 8/9s in Gcse science bcc of him ) .

Now the thing I wanna ask or I’m confused about is how do you manage to get on to getting 3 masters in all them subjects ,like does a undergraduate only restrict you from one area of learning ? I am still baffled about how someone jumped from bio to psych to education.

Thx

The entry requirements for masters programs will vary, but the universities will want to know whether you're able to do the course. You can move across disciplines because of this e.g. if you did aerospace engineering, you can do a degree in finance.
Should you not have the necessary qualifications, you can do a postgraduate diploma, which is essentially half of a bachelor's, just to say you can do the subject. Some subjects are more quantitative though, and trying to switch over from a non-quantiative subject is not possible even with a PG Diploma e.g. economics to physics/engineering.
There is also no limit to the number of masters you can do, but it can get very expensive very quickly.

In all likelihood, I am guessing your teacher did an undergrad in biology, before doing masters in psychology and biology. You can apply for a degree in education irrespective of your undergrad.
Whilst psychology and biology are from completely disciplines, the skills required to study in either subjects aren't that dissimilar. In fact, the subjects tend to be complementary as A Level options.

A lot of MSc are basically compressed undergrad degrees, they are not picky about the subject, most only want you to come 'from a related discipline with 2:1"

Also your teacher must be so richhhh.
