Applying to Masters, how does it work?!

Hey all,

Sorry if the title is misleading - I'm not going to do my masters for a while - I just left high school lol! I applied to MA programs on UCAS, but I'm confused...do I have to apply for masters programs after the two years, or am I automatically accepted? (providing I pass all my courses, I assume)

I was thinking of going to UofG for bachelor, then doing masters somewhere else, but if I accept my offer now will I be stuck there for masters too? Maybe stuck isn't the right word, I'm sure its great.

Im very confused, please help!!!

Hi!👋🏻

So how masters works is different than undergrad. It can be a bit confusing! So before applying to a masters you need to have an undergraduate degree or have nearly completed one. This is unless it is an integrated course. Some courses have an integrated masters with the undergraduate. For this you’ll do three years undergrad and then for fourth year the masters. Also for masters you typically apply straight to the university instead of through UCAS. 📖

Is your course an integrated one or just a bachelors?

If your course is just undergrad, then you can apply to any masters after. You won’t be stuck or locked in. You can change your mind up until the day you start!🎓

I hope this helps. If it doesn’t just let me know anything else I can help with! 😊
