Master’s Preparation Programmes


Bachelors Preparation ProgrammesMany countries offer international students a preparation programme for admissions to Master’s studies. Nevertheless a completion of these courses, in contrast to Bachelor’s preparation programmes, is not obligatory to admission requirements. This is often the case about taking a Master’s preparation programme; if a student needs to improve academic performance, language skills or to benefit from an easier admissions process to universities overseas. Such preparation programmes also allow you to receive an upgrade, if you plan to apply to a programme with a completely different major to that already received.

Master’s preparation programmes usually take place in a selected country of further education. They are exceptionally popular in the UK, Canada, the USA, Australia, New Zealand and the Netherlands.


Master’s preparation programmes have many advantages:

  • adaptation to a different education system
  • familiarization with a country
  • language practice
  • academic knowledge improvement
  • studying subjects in a language of further education
  • easier admissions to the university

How does it work?

Preparation centres have agreements with universities to make the student admissions process easier. If a prospective student has already decided on their university then he/she can apply for a specific preparation programme. If you achieve the required grade on this course, then you will be guaranteed an acceptance to the selected university and master’s programme.

If a student hasn’t decided on their university and would like to have more time, it makes sense to consider preparation programmes at independent centres. On completion of the course you can apply to the recommended partner university as well as to any other institution within this country.
