Pre Master Program

pre-masters-program

In such a competitive global work force, it is increasingly important for professionals to differentiate themselves from the “competition” in any way possible. Studying for a Master’s qualification demonstrates a commitment to study and self-improvement. More than that, studying in a foreign country, where classes may or may not be taught in your first language and the culture is unfamiliar, shows you are willing to try new things, take risks, be open-minded and step out of your comfort zone.

However, studying overseas is not always as simple as applying for a course, accepting an offer and commencing study. A number of factors, including low scores in an undergraduate degree, a low level of English or having been out of the education system for a number of years in the work force can all affect the likelihood of acceptance into your desired course. Furthermore, every country has its own education standards, which may not align to enable direct entry into a course in a foreign country.

For students in this position, it is worthwhile to consider Pre-Master’s programs and the potential benefits of such programs. The first is that upon successful completion of a Pre-Master’s program, students are guaranteed entry into their desired course. The programs span 2 to 3 semesters, and students may be awarded academic credit toward their Master’s degrees. This means that in some cases, Pre-Master’s students may even skip the first year of their Master’s degree.

Pre-Master’s courses are tailored programs that provide a pathway to postgraduate study at world-class institutions. These courses incorporate English classes into the study program for international students, and give all students access to university facilities, both academic and social, including on-campus study and sport centres. The universities also have connections with employers, which students may take advantage of.

In terms of teaching style, students are split into small classes with a high number of contact hours to best facilitate their study needs. Students spend one-on-one time with tutors to ensure their success in the program and subsequent acceptance into their desired Master’s degree. University staff work with students to provide a solid academic foundation and teach key study skills to help students excel.

Taking the United Kingdom as a case study, there are flexible start dates in January, May and September, and a shorter total study time, as Master’s degrees in the UK are just one year long. This decreased study period saves money, which is highly appealing to many students. Furthermore, an English-taught education is highly sought after around the world, which offers graduates many great opportunities.

Depending on a student’s individual study needs, preparation courses are also offered for the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) and Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT).
