So i was accepted to a master data science program in the UK, but I am also interested in a machine learning specific program at another institution, also in the UK.
The thing is that my data science program has some overlap to the machine learning program, but not completely. The machine learning program has significantly more in-depth courses, and many other courses regarding deep learning's applications that are not available at my current program.
So is it fine if I apply for the machine learning program after the data science one? In the UK, are there rules that forbids this? Or would the admission committee just throw my app out since they deemed for some reason the two programs are too similar?
