Hi folks, seeking some advice. I am a mature student (33 years old, working full time) I am expected to gain a 1st in my B.A. (History) in the summer and I would eventually like to pursue a PhD. I spoke to a potential supervisior at my local university who suggested that, whilst jumping from B.A. to PhD is not impossible, he would recommend a Masters level degree before attempting a PhD; on balance I would probably agree with this.

Therefore I am currently split between an MRES at Leicester (There is a supervisor at Leicester who has similar research interests to my own) or a broader MA at Birmingham. Does anybody have any views on which course would be a better preparation? I am swinging towards the MRES but would be keen to hear your thoughts.

Thanks in advance
