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.
