Students wishing to register for a PhD are normally expected to hold a Master's award in a relevant area. Applicants for MPhil will normally be required to have a first or second class honours degree. Those accepted for registration for MPhil may be allowed to apply for transfer to PhD registration at a later date subject to satisfactory research progress. Previous study in philosophy is not required but applicants without background in the subject will be assessed with respect to their likely success.
