I doubt I'll do well enough to get an MA. If I do though, I'd love get one - as well as a phD. I've always fancied the title Dr.

Customer: hey doctor, are they any more Value Beans in stock?

I will have to do an LL.M. and/or a Dr. jur. to stand a chance of getting a good job.

The scottish system is a pain in the bum, their MA is halfway between an english BA and an MA - it depends on which subject you've done at undergraduate level and what you want to study as a post grad.

If in doubt the answer to almost all postgrad questions can be found here: http://www.prospects.ac.uk (fabulous site).

After you graduate with a bachelors degree, would you go on to study a masters degree and/or PhD?
I did a D.Phil (PhD) straight from my BSc.

Like I said you'd be a ****** to take a place without funding if you are a home or EU student, as funded places go vacant in science.

Some people don't have the option! A fair few research grants only cover lab based stuff - consumables and the like and don't stretch to stipends for researchers...

Also places go vacant due to policy driven criteria. Working for a body that funds PhD students, I've seen this first hand.

Yes, but this is mostly an not Oxbridge audience, so to most an Mphil is something below a PhD, but above an MA. Of course at Cambridge (and Oxford) MA are merely ceremonial, even though they do offers MSc's, I think.
Apologies for my ignorance...but why is a MA in Oxbridge ceremonial? :confused:

Anyone planning on studying for two master's degrees? It seems a good idea if your PhD proposal spans more than one subject area.
