Master by research

Hi there
has anyone done a Master by research in a University like Geneva? What was the requirements? Do you know the fee structure? I have to do it in English as my French is not good enough. I don't have Swiss citizenship but I am eligible to apply for it as my husband and kids are Swiss. Or have you done Master by coursework in the area of Human Resources or International Development or Applied Psychology? What was your experience? Thanks

Re: Master by research

Unlike a coursework based (or taught) Masters, research Masters requires the student to complete independent research, usually assessed through papers, thesis etc. Research Masters students typically attend less (if any) classes, instead focussing on completing their research work, with the help of an advisor or supervisor. Research Masters are often favored by students planning to follow up with a Ph.D / research work.

Toasttravel, here is a list of Master's Programs at Uni Ge. For studies in development, the Graduate Institute has a good reputation.

MRes. Common in pure and applied sciences. Thus, not sure if this exists in the areas mentioned by the OP.

OP, a good starting point is to visit the websites of the universities you would like to attend and see if they offer this.

Re: Master by research

I'm pretty sure any master in science has at least 9-12 months of research project (with some credit points of coursework but not much) but it's just called master.
Usually you don't have a choice between the two in europe, I've never even heard of this and I've looked at many universities websites, maybe you can change something when you choose the actual courses inside the program. I would look directly at what masters are offered at the university and what the respective study regulations say.

Re: Master by research

Many Masters are taught in English here so that shouldn't be a problem. The only possible one I can see is trying for the Applied Psychology one. That may be a restricted course - medicine, veterinary, sports sciences, etc, are only open to Swiss/Lichtenstein nationals and people who have lived here for many years. Whether that course falls under the medicine category I don't know, but I expect the course requirements will tell you whether it would be open to outsiders or not. If it doesn't then you can always ask the uni admission's office.

There is an MS of arts in standardization, social regulation and sustainable development at uni ge. Might that be of interest?

You might also look at the uni lausanne, as well as the federal technical uni (epfl, i think).
