Just had an email informaing me of a place for a research masters at Salford, its all about integerating SMS into their Virtual Learning system. Requirements are a 2:1 in my course or computer science.

However they will pay for the tuition fees and give you a bursery of £5500 a year. I doubt I have any chance of getting in it but its worth a try, I should be able to get a good reference of my tutor and a good reference from my boss who happens to have a PhD from my university.

There is an awful lot of people taking up masters primarily due to the fact that copious amounts of people are studying for single/join honours degrees now a days.

Since you live in manchester AT, why don't you apply for a research masters in Manchester uni. It's better than Salford. They also want a 2:1 requirement too.

By the way, what is the masters research course called? I am assuming this is an MPhil course.

Not sure its just a one off, research thing, there is only one place on it, its not a taught masters. There will be too much competiton at Manchester and I can't afford to to a masters, I can only afford this one becuase they give you quite a large busery. Its still a 5* department so I don't think the insitution will make any difference to the quality of the masters in this case especialy as its a research one.
