Is postgraduate study a bit of a mystery to you?
Not too sure what a Masters degree entails and why you would undertake one? Unsure of what the differences are between an MSc and an MRes? Bamboozled by the various abbreviations? You won't be alone! The options and opportunities that may be available to you at postgraduate level are not necessarily obvious or clear.
Postgraduate programmes fall into two basic types: Taught degrees (mainly Masters degrees) and Research degrees. Normally progression to a research degree is dependent upon successful completion of a taught Masters programme. But a taught programme is an advantageous or essential stepping stone towards fulfilling numerous aspirations.
Continuing to a research degree is just one possible direction in which a taught degree can lead. Many who undertake a taught Masters are motivated by a desire to study at an advanced level a subject which fascinates them while simultaneously acquiring skills and experience that will enhance their job prospects or career.
