Preparing for a Masters degree


Deepen your academic knowledge and improve your English language skills through a twelve-week programme designed to prepare you for postgraduate study at the University of Aberdeen. If you studied your undergraduate degree in your home country but now want to enhance your employability by studying at a world-class research university, this pathway is for you.

Why study the Pre-Masters Programme?

  • A fast-track twelve-week programme designed to prepare you for postgraduate study in the UK
  • Develop your academic subject knowledge and English language skills
  • Help adjusting to a new education system

If you need extra support with your English language before your degree and pathway programme, you can also join our Pre-Sessional English programme for either five or ten weeks, depending on your requirements.

Choose from two subject routes

Your study plan


The Pre-Masters Programme offers multiple entry points throughout the academic year for you to choose from, as long as you meet the minimum entry requirements and pay your fees. If you do not have the minimum English language entry requirements, you can study either five or ten weeks of Pre-Sessional English before beginning your pathway.
