    Some direct masters courses are shorter than the bachelor + master courses.

    Heard of it, but in the creative field. Cause the degree course over in the other country has very similar course structure to what was taken during poly, so some pple can just skip the degree and go straight to Masters.

    One of the reason given was that the bachelor course is a recognized degree in australia under PE board and the school cannot take in those without relevant diploma. Then for master they have no problem as not so strict.
    something similar.

    he actually went to ask abt bachelor's but was offered a master's place instead. i think it could be due to the fact that the master's is more expensive than the bachelor's course and is 2 yrs part time as compared to 3 or 4 for the bachelor's.

    i can't discount the fact that $$$$ is very much a driving factor...


    he has paid for the course and is due to start soon, yes, taught locally.

    thanks guys for the many inputs!!


    my friend has ALREADY paid up for the course(earlier tis evening when i met up with him), for the 1st semester and he has decided to rough it out even though i've warned him and in the end, the choice is his n his alone!



    quite an eye-opener, this masters' degree issue!
