What is an Integrated Master’s degree?

An Integrated Master’s degree combines undergraduate and postgraduate study. When you apply for an Integrated Master’s, you are essentially committing to undergraduate and postgraduate study at the same time. The Integrated Master’s degree is normally identical to the equivalent undergraduate course, but provides the opportunity to explore a subject in greater detail by offering a fourth year of study, enabling you to graduate with a more specialised qualification.
