We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
A Master's by Research (MA) allows you to undertake a one year (full-time) or two year (part-time)research degree. It contains a limited amount of formal taught sessions. This type of study gives you the chance to explore a research topic over a shorter time than a more in-depth doctoral programme.
Research Master's students choose a specific project to work on and have a greater degree of independence in their work than is the case with a taught masters course.
You’ll be expected to work to an approved programme of work which you will develop in conjunction with your supervisor within the first few months of starting your studies. Whilst undertaking the research project you will also have the opportunity to develop your research skills by taking part in training courses and events.
