in PhD Life

What’s the difference between a Masters by research (MRes or MPhil) and a Masters by coursework (MA, MBus or MSc)? And why might you do a Masters by research instead of a PhD?

I completed a Masters of Business by Research in 2018. I don’t believe the purpose of a masters degree by research is particularly clear, so I answer some common questions in a video below.

In this video, I address the following points:

  • how I view the benefits of a Masters by research
  • the difference between a Masters by research and a Masters by coursework
  • why I’m doing a Masters by research
  • some of the things that were harder than I expected in my Masters by research
  • the difference between an “honours” project and a Masters by research

Questions? Send them to me on Twitter @sarahdillon and I’d be happy to answer.
