Master’s Degree for Students Without an Honours Degree


How to apply for a master’s without an Honours degree

Some of our students want advice and support to help them apply for postgraduate degree courses (usually taught postgraduate degree courses) without having an honours degree. It is often the case that university graduates, from some countries, graduate with a degree, where the ‘Honours’ year is considered to be a postgraduate qualification. We have a lot of experience working with clients to help them understand which universities will consider them for a master’s course without an honours degree.

We can help you in identifying suitable universities and degree courses that will meet your needs. We will then help you apply for these degrees, including helping you write a successful personal statement and cv to accompany your application. Our advice will help you to gain entry to a UK postgraduate master’s without an honours degree.


University requirements for a master’s without an honours degree

At some universities there are options to do a pre-master’s degree course lasting for one or two semesters. These courses are specifically aimed at students who need further preparation to gain entry on to a postgraduate degree course in the UK.

If your English language qualifications do not meet the entry criteria for postgraduate programmes, there are a range of options we can support you with. IELTS conditions are usually higher for master’s degree courses. Your options may include undertaking a pre-sessional course aimed at enhancing your English, or taking an intensive IELTS course to ensure you meet the entry criteria for your postgraduate degree programme.

Applying for a master’s degree without an honours degree requires some specialist guidance and many of the core elements of our postgraduate university application support service. If you would like to find out more please contact us to speak to one of our advisers.
