Hi. I have a Master's in Film Studies from the University of London. My final scores were not that great - borderline 2:1. Anyway, I graduated in 2012 after my final thesis evaluation.
I've been working since then, but felt that I was getting stuck in a loop with no intellectual growth, and I always wanted to study more. Just wasn't too sure of a good time to do it. Finally, I've decided to foray back into studying. However, I'm a bit confused as to whether apply into an MPhil or a PhD directly in Film Studies. Or try for those integrated programmes which begin with a 2-year MPhil and then automatically progress you into a PhD?
I did do a Master's thesis at the end of my MA, but I haven't had any experience/practise in research/academic writing this then? So a tad bit confused over whether I should go directly for a PhD or whether an MPhil would serve as a good base to get back into studying?
And actually passed?
