Hello, not sure if this has been covered before. Apologies if it has. I'd like to know if Masters by coursework or Masters by research is the same? Assuming the goal is to do a PhD. Will taking a Masters by coursework, albeit in a reputable university, spoil one's chances of getting into a PhD program? Does Masters by coursework imbue the practitioner with better foundations to practice? As in, how do employers view coursework vs research students? Are research students definitely going into academia, or postdoctoral work? Thank you.
