An MPhil is a Masters-level research degree on a topic of your choice, achieved through personal research and the close guidance of an academic supervisor with relevant expertise. A highly flexible qualification, your MPhil can either be ‘stand alone’ or, via an upgrade examination, can form part of doctoral-level work, extending your thesis further and leading to a PhD.
To facilitate greater autonomy and develop a range of skills, all MPhil students are normally required to take one or more research training modules during the first year of their study.
