OK.. not sure exactly how it worksin the UK but I think it's fairly similar to here in Ireland.
We have the following levels in Uni/College:
Certificate (2 years)
Diploma (Cert + 1 year, or 3 years straight)
Degree (4 years Straight, or Diploma + 2 year)
Taught Masters (Degree + 1 year full time in college/uni without funding)
Research Masters (Degree + 2 years research with funding if you can get it)
Phd (Degree + 3/4 years, or Masters (Taught or Research) + 1-3 years)
Here in TSSG they "provide" research masters positions in the area of Advanced Telecommunications. In Ireland when you get your degree (4 years or 5 years if you do a diploma first) you can then go on to do a Masters. To do this you either do it and pay for it (around €6000 a year in fees) or get a research group like TSSG to pay for it... so here you'd get around €40,000 for 2 years which includes the €12000 in fees for 2 years).. not many people get a deal like that in Ireland. Only maybe 100 students all over the country each year.
They also provide PHD's but only for those who have already completed a Research Masters. Does that explain it? I'm not sure if I was clear.
Nah that'll be different to here. The degree i'm after is the MEng in Civil Engineering, MEng is "Masters of Engineering", its a 4 year course as apposed to a 3 year Bachelors BEng.
HOpefully I should get a decent job for life with an MEng.
you should be thankful, my first thought was to have you executed but then i thought nah, cos ive liked every irish man ive met, so ill let you live
funny thing happened a couple of weeks ago, where i met a completly drunk irish bloke in the middle of london, and he was explaining his final year project for computer science...and asked me to do it for him...lol
