A Masters degree is the second level of Higher Education, where you can apply when you already own a bachelor’s degree or some professional higher education degree and want to deepen your knowledge and qualifications in the specific area. A Master’s course lasts for 1 to 3 years, depending on the choice of the form of studies and degrees (MA, MSc or research-based Master’s). Master’s curriculum takes into account the learners needs of going to work. It is possible to study full-time, part-time or from distance. The obtained Master’s degree will provide you with an advantage in the labour market as it provides a thorough understanding of the chosen field of specialisation.
The range of areas to specialise on is very wide and the graduation diplomas are recognised all over the world. The lectures are conducted by professionals who usually work in large companies and have long-term experience in the specific area. The study fees of Master’s programmes depend on the specific speciality and University. It is possible to apply for various scholarships which will help you cover the study costs.
Entry requirements also vary depending on the University and the chosen speciality. The results of the undergraduate degree, work experience and motivation is usually taken into account. If you have not studied in English before, you are required to pass the IELTS test to prove that you have efficient language skills to study Master’s.
The deadlines for applications are different for each University.
