[D] Is one year of master’s “sufficient”?


Throughout my search for promising master’s programs in Europe (and the UK 🙂 ), I’ve seen the trend that some of the top programs (mostly located in the UK) offer only one year of study. Since I’m interested in pursuing a PhD, I feel like my master’s should mostly be spent on branching out my knowledge in various ML domains as much as possible to better guide me to an interesting research area. However, with only two semesters of study, where the second one also includes a master’s thesis, this goes against my notion. Moreover, I would like to join a research group while doing master’s, and I feel like having everything in a single year could become overwhelming.

Is my understanding “wrong”? There are many great institutions in the UK offering a 1-year master’s program and I would really like to like this shorter-term master’s idea. Ideally, I would like to do PhD in the same institution as I did my master’s and thus I don’t want to miss out.

So, is one year of master’s sufficient?

Thank you!
