In summary, a MRes is a research-based degree program, while a MSc is a coursework-based degree program. The cost of a MRes or MSc varies, but generally a MRes is more expensive due to the added research component. Both degrees can prepare you for a PhD, with a MRes being more beneficial for a research-based PhD and a MSc being more beneficial for a coursework-based PhD. The duration of a MRes or MSc program varies, with a MRes typically taking 1-2 years and a MSc taking 1-3 years. It is possible to switch between the two degrees, but it may depend on the university and program requirements. It is important to research and consult with the university
