I'm looking for advice on doing an MSc by research. I have a bachelors degree in physics and have been thinking about taking up a masters, however, most of the courses are by research.
I did a research project as part of my degree and found it quite isolating to be honest. I spent a lot of time alone in the lab and writing things up. Is an MSc by research similar to this?
I think I would prefer a taught MSc and be able to go to lectures and sit exams, whilst also doing research, but the courses that interest me (such as quantum fields at Imperial) are much more expensive.
Thanks in advance

A masters by research or MRes is very research focused so if you know you don't enjoy research go for a taught MSc.
