I graduated with a 1st in Biomedical Sciences in 2001. After doing office work I'd now like a career in research. But I can't decide whether to do a Masters or PhD. I don't have much lab experience, which is why a Masters may be the best option to start with, but a PhD would be a better qualification to have. But I'm not sure I'd get a good PhD with my lack of experience. Or I could try to get a lab technician job? Any advice would be very much appreciated.
Hi Becky, if you want a career in research then it would probably be better to do a research degree (Mphil or PhD) rather than a taught MSc. It's certainly worth considering getting a lab tech job first, that's what I did after completing my first degree and I'm now a PhD student within the same research group. It was a good way of getting some research experience first. Best of luck!
I had a M.Sc.in ICS since 1992.Now, I am looking to continue PhD on a long distance basis while I am working in outside UK. Which Is better for me the long distnace or part time basis from an accerdited university. What is best research area/UK university that combines/provides a PhD in IT with bussiness
