BA Philosophy/Theology and Religious Studies MA by Research Currently enrolled for PhD
"My MA by Research was an excellent means to developing and proving skills in self-motivation of a large project, undertaking detailed and theoretically complex research and managing and producing a substantial amount of work. I was provided with transferrable skills, as well as some teaching practice, and finished my MA with a richer CV, beyond just the addition of another qualification, and also with a much better idea of the work required to undertake a PhD.
With this latter goal in mind, I am sure that my MA also enhanced my successful bids for PhD funding, as it allowed me to develop and demonstrate an aptitude for research gained at a first-class university".
