Minimum of upper-second class undergraduate degree (or equivalent); IELTS level 7.0 (where relevant).
Months of entry
The Integrated MPhil/PhD combines supervised doctoral research with accredited research methods training. Students undertake a research thesis (PhD or MPhil) in tandem with the taught modules of a research-focused Masters degree:
- MSc in Developmental and Educational Psychology
- MSc in Economics of Education
- MSc in Policy Analysis and Evaluation
- MSc in Research for Public Policy and Practice
Note that Integrated MPhil/PhD students complete only the taught modules of their chosen Masters programme, not the dissertation. The taught modules are undertaken over the first two years of full-time study (or the first three years of part-time study), alongside the doctoral research project. Successful completion of all taught modules is a condition of progression to the third year of the programme (or the fourth year for part-time students).
The programme is aimed at doctoral applicants who recognise the value of accredited research methods training but do not want to delay their doctoral work for a year in order to complete a research-focused Masters programme.
Modules are primarily taught face-to-face in daytime and evening sessions, though some modules can be taken online. Doctoral supervisions may be conducted face-to-face, by phone or electronically.
The programme is designed to be completed in four years of full-time study or seven years of part-time study. The entry date is October each year, applications are accepted from January to the end of August.
