Hello

Can someone let me know what's the difference between a Masters course starting in January 2022 and in September 2022 ? Usually courses tend to start In September so I am confused about January intakes? What is this? and is this for every masters course?

No difference
Its only the date you starting is the only thing as if you start in January then the course runs basically till following January or Xmas holidays that the academic year finishes up.
Starting in September will mean you'll finish the end of August the following year at end of academic year.
This is how nursing courses work okay.

Not necessary every course will do this way. It probably done this way to allow the BSC course to get going and allowing time for to prepare for masters ??

Jan entry was begun by low end universities desperate to get overseas students in to their courses. It has become slightly more mainstream because of Covid making meeting all the academic and travel rules by September impossible.

Be aware it is always a minority entry point though, there will be no Freshers week and the usual start of term sales, student discounts, endless inductions etc, and you will always be out of synch with the mainstream UK academic seasons, including the recruiting season with employers.

Start in September/October unless you are entirely self-sufficient about going to uni and working it out for yourself for 3 years.
