1. "If I were a master student, I had to study."

2. "If I were a master student, I would have to study."

Which of the above sentences is grammatically correct?

No. 2 is correct as it comes under the second conditional - if + past simple, ... would + infinitive.

I would also like to know what "master student" means, because I'm not familiar with this term.

Could it be a "master's student" (i.e., a student studying for a master's degree)?

Yes. Exactly that's what I meant. (a student studying for a master's degree)
