lalalacereza Posted February 4, 2008 Share Posted February 4, 2008 I'm starting an MA program in international affairs at a very competitive uni in the US, and (I know that this is impostor syndrome!) I'm concerned that it's going to be too much of a challenge for me. A few people have told me that UK and Australian Bachelor's degrees are more rigorous than those in the US, and that our Honours degrees in particular (final year is pure research, culminating in two 8000 word articles and a 17-20,000 word thesis) cover a lot of what would be postgrad level stuff over there. Does anyone feel qualified to tell me if this is in fact the case? If it were I'd feel much, much better. I'd have no qualms signing up for a similar program here (Australia), because I know the lie of the land. I'm probably just being paranoid, but I am terrified that I'll get there and everyone'll be lightyears ahead of me and the workload will give me a nervous breakdown!
