Integrated Masters

What is an Integrated Masters? 

When you study an Integrated Masters, you start at an Undergraduate level and stay studying your course for 4 years (or 5 years with a placement).  

Considering you pass the first 3 years of your course, you are guaranteed progression onto the final level, the Masters year. You will therefore not need to create another application and will automatically progress and finish your studies. 

Even though you will begin studying an Undergraduate course, you will graduate with a Masters, and will only require one graduation ceremony. 


Why study an Integrated Masters? 

  • Studying a Masters gives you the opportunity to delve even deeper into your subject, focus on exactly what it is you enjoy, and develop your transferable skills even further. 
  • Many people study an Integrated Masters as it could give them a competitive advantage in industry if they have a higher qualification than their counterparts. 
  • Studying an Integrated Masters means you are able to complete a high level of study in at least 4 years.  
  • If you are a UK student, Integrated Masters degrees are eligible for standard Undergraduate funding including fees for the full duration of the course, loans and bursaries. This leaves you free to enjoy the early years of your degree without applying for a separate Masters course and worrying about how to pay for it.


Applying for an Integrated Masters

When applying for an Integrated Masters, the application process is the same as applying for any other undergraduate course. 

Check out our Undergraduate Application Guides for further information on applying as a UK student, and our Guidance for International Students if you’re applying as an International or EU student.

For students applying through UCAS, there will be a required amount of UCAS tariff points. The amount of points needed may differ between a standard undergraduate course (BSc, Beng, etc.) and an Integrated Masters course (MChem, MPhys, MEng, etc.), so it is always worth double checking the course webpage.

If you are applying through UCAS, you will also need to be mindful that the UCAS code for an Integrated Masters course is different from an undergraduate only course. Always check the course page and make sure that, when making your application, you’re using the correct code. This code may also be used when applying for funding.
