A Master's by Research (MA) allows you to undertake a one year (full time) research degree. It contains little or no formal taught component. Such programmes are attractive to those wanting a briefer research degree than a PhD.
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.
