Future masters students
A masters degree allows you to build on your previous study by increasing your knowledge and understanding in a specific subject area and enhancing your career prospects. Most masters programmes comprise 120 points, though in some cases 240 points are required. Masters degrees are usually offered as research or taught options (NB: Not all masters degrees offer both options).
A research masters provides you with the opportunity to develop advanced research skills and present findings in a documented scholarly form (such as a thesis). Your research should make an independent contribution to learning or offer a critical perspective on existing scholarship or methodology.
A taught masters will provide you with advanced specialist training in your chosen field, and is normally completed by courses only, although some can include a dissertation.
