Should I choose a taught or a research programme?
This largely depends on what you are hoping to get out of your postgraduate programme and the reason you are returning to/continuing your studies. It is recommended that you discuss this question with people in the academic department of your choice. If you are currently a student, you may find it helpful to make an appointment with your personal tutor or postgraduate admissions officer within the department.
The decision may also depend on your long term career aims. Visit the Careers Service at your university where you can discuss your requirements, interests and goals.
