Prior to enrolling in a master’s degree programme, students need to hold a bachelor’s degree. Some graduate programmes require that the student’s undergraduate education be in a related field, while others accept any bachelor’s degree from an accredited institution.
Master’s degree programs often require students to have maintained a 3.0 grade point average during their undergraduate education. Other prerequisites include providing college transcripts, letters of recommendation and a written essay on educational and career goals. Depending on the programme, students may also have to submit scores for evaluation exams.
Students with bachelor’s degree in education are eligible for the admission to the masters programme. However, they need specific qualifications for admission if their degree is in a different subject. In a semester system, they have to pass an entrance test for admission in a different specialization subject.
