Taught masters degree (normally an MA, MSc, MRes or MEd) is an award granted on the basis of an individually initiated and registered research programme. The programme is built around a supervised thesis on a substantial piece of work, which may need to show evidence of originality and contain material worthy of publication. It also involves an element of research training through generic courses and taught modules and/or courses.
Research degree programmes (MPhil, PhD, DBA, DSc, DLitt, DTech or LLD) are designed to develop deeper understanding through original investigation and to generate new knowledge. A postgraduate research degree involves the systematic high level study of a problem or topic. Candidates work closely with a supervisory team, and present their results in the form of a written thesis. A research degree is time consuming and demanding, persistence and dedication are needed to bring it to a successful completion.
