Academic Masters build on the subject knowledge you gained at undergraduate level, specialising in advanced study of a certain topic. They usually come in in two forms: taught and research.
Taught programmes are generally more structured, while research Masters are much more independent in nature, giving you the chance to concentrate on one or more extended projects. This page features guides to the main examples of both types of Masters, such as the Master of Arts (MA), Master of Science (MSc), Master of Research (MRes) and Master of Philosophy (MPhil).
The MRes combines taught modules with more extensive research training, often as preparation for further work at PhD-level.Read more
Integrated Masters combine undergraduate and postgraduate study, usually lasting for four or more years.Read more
