    I'm contemplating doing a MRes in education at a local university, largely out of interest. My undergrad was Educational Studies and I got a good 2i. But it was 15 years ago... I've been unable to work for the past 5 years due to depression but, fingers crossed, new drugs are actually working a bit so it's feasible that with a bit more of a dose, I could be thinking about work/study.

    My initial idea would be to do a PhD in education afterwards then into educational research. However, I'm not convinced there's much of a market after graduation. Would an MRes actually give me any advantages in the job market or would I be losing a year of employment,if I end up doing uni admin which i did before and really enjoyed.

    I've already got a PGCE in primary but I burned out after a year (was developing depression then but didn't realise it).
