Top business schools and universities from around the world and from diverse Masters specialisations – this is just a glimpse of what the Access Masters Spring Tour has put in place for graduate school applicants in 2020.
This year, the Tour will visit more than twenty cities on four continents. Young professionals will have the opportunity to meet representatives of reputable schools in person to discuss the next steps in their education and career.
The season starts with a One-to-One event in London on 20 January. What else does the Access Masters Spring Tour have in store for aspiring professionals?
Learn about your graduate school options in depth
Current or recently graduated Bachelor’s students who are in search of an internationally acclaimed Masters degree can benefit from the personalised One-to-One format. Every registered event participant gets to meet the universities that most closely match their background and preferences. Are you interested in Business and Management programmes in the UK? Access Masters organisers will do their best to set up your One-to-One meetings with the most relevant UK schools while still presenting you with alternative exciting options and destinations.
In order to receive their schedule of 20-minute meetings, participants need to register free of charge in advance of the event.
Explore diverse programmes freely
Not all prospective Masters students know exactly how they want to continue their academic path. During the Access Masters Tour, event participants have the opportunity to find out what interests them most by getting to know a wide variety of universities and their specialisations. This can be accomplished during the Open Fair which all attendees get to explore without prior appointment. Each event covers different types of Masters programmes, but most include Business, Engineering, Science, Social Sciences, Marketing, Finance, and the Humanities.
Most candidates find the Open Fair useful as they can discuss the student life and career prospects after graduation with school representatives.
Get inspired with workshops and prizes
Without a doubt, finding the right school and programme for you is the most attractive opportunity of the Access Masters Tour. However, each event has additional features that help you find your path and prepare for graduate school. Our partners, who include test preparation providers for GMAT, GRE, TOEFL, and IELTS, will be there to introduce you to one of the first steps of your Masters application – admission tests. Every participant will also learn how to make a good impression when speaking with graduate school representatives, thanks to an interactive workshop.
One of the most exciting features for attendees is the campus visit lottery. By attending an Access Masters event, every participant enters a draw for a chance to win a free visit to the university of their choice at the end of the Tour. The campus visit is an invaluable opportunity to experience student life in a particular school and put yourself in the shoes of a Masters student.

Get to know programmes with international reputation
When choosing their best Masters programme, prospective students have to consider not only its format and focus, but also the location of the university. The Access Masters Tour introduces attendees to top-ranked and accredited schools located abroad as well as in their home region. Of course, student preferences are highly individual. Regardless of the country they are headed to, they will be able to explore a variety of schools all over Europe, the US, Canada, South America, and more.
INSEAD (France), IE Business School (Spain), and Vlerick Business School (Belgium) are just some of the European institutions that Access Masters attendees get to interact with. Babson College (US), Hult International Business School (US), and UBC Sauder (Canada) are among the North American schools participating in the 2020 Spring Tour.
The list gets even longer when you start to explore your university options around the world. It is true that taking the final decision can be challenging, but it gets easier as soon as you ask the right people to help you out. We hope you will dive into your graduate experience with Access Masters in 2020!
