I recently graduated with a degree of BSc in Physics, after failing a masters in physics due to depression. I have been interested in data science during my undergraduate studies and have been trying to find a job as a data scientist or machine learning engineer, but after several months of rejections, it's clear that companies don't want someone with no experience or a relevant degree. So I am pondering the possibility of applying to a masters in data science or machine learning. Is reapplying masters frowned upon? Any advice on how I can convey to the professors that I can complete the degree despite my failure?
Update: I have disclosed my situation in my personal statement. My referees have also promised to write strong recommendation letters. It all depends on my performance in the interview now, if I get one.
Update 2: I applied to UCL, KCL, Nottingham and Bristol. I received offers from all apart from UCL! I accepted the offer from KCL.
