Welcome to the FindAMasters weekly newsletter,

If youre currently considering a Masters, theres a good chance youre coming to the end of an undergraduate degree. You might have finished recently. Or you might be getting ready for your final exams (in which case: good luck!).

Either way, you might also feel like a break. Should you take one?

This week were asking whether it might be worth putting the gap year on hold ("https://www.findamasters.com/advice/blog/blog-post.aspx?bpid=2166") and going straight into a Masters.

2017 has already been an interesting year for students, with new postgraduate finance options ("https://www.findamasters.com/funding/guides/new-uk-postgraduate-loans-scheme.aspx") and the ongoing implications ("https://www.findamasters.com/advice/blog/blog-post.aspx?bpid=1863") of the Brexit process.
