You should normally have a BA in a relevant subject with at least a clear upper second class result. If it's in an unrelated field, you may be considered subject to qualifying interview/submission of sample essays.
Months of entry
If you would like to take a Master's degree before studying at MPhil/PhD level, the MRes is ideal. This is a one-year full-time or two-year part-time programme, primarily assessed by a dissertation on a topic of your choice, with supporting essays on relevant research methods and either a bibliographical exercise or a review of the critical/theoretical literature.
The MRes qualifies you to carry out higher-level research, but is also a degree in its own right.
Information for international students
Suitable proficiency in English and (where applicable) in the language(s) required for your research is an essential requirement.
