Masters by Research Degrees

A Masters by Research degree differs in delivery from a Taught Masters degree. As the name suggests, you will develop a research programme that will take you to the Masters level. It is designed to prepare you for doctoral or PhD research. As there are no set classroom components, a Masters by Research degree can offer you great flexibility and can allow you to develop a programme based on your own personal interests.
