Prepare for a master’s degree at a top university
If you wish to earn a master’s degree from a UK or US university but do not meet the entry requirements, a master’s preparation programme may be the right choice. A graduate preparation programme (also known as Pre-Master’s pathway) can help you prepare for and gain entry to a master’s degree.
These courses provide routes to excellent universities in the UK and USA that you might not otherwise qualify for entry to. You can choose from a number of degree subjects and universities in great UK and US locations, so you can start your path to degree and career success.
Pre-Master’s courses in the UK
Many of the Pre-Master’s courses are taught right on university campuses. Once you pass your Pre-Master’s course at the required level and with good attendance, you are guaranteed progression to a master’s degree at one of the world-leading UK universities.
Entry requirements vary. Typical requirements are:
- Academic: at least 3 years of higher education or equivalent
- English language: UKVI IELTS 4.5 to 5.5 or accepted equivalent
Note: the duration of your Pre-Master’s course will vary between 4 and 18 months, depending on your needs and level of English language.
