Course content

The MPhil and PhD are higher degrees obtained by research. Each offers an excellent opportunity to study a topic in-depth and to develop intellectual, technical and managerial skills. The two courses differ in that research at MPhil level represents an extension of existing knowledge, while at PhD level, students will be expected to make an original contribution to knowledge. Most students enrol first for the MPhil and transfer to the PhD when their work has sufficiently developed. However, it is possible to enrol directly onto the PhD course, if appropriately qualified.

While on the course, students will have a supervisory team made up of a Principal Supervisor with experience in the chosen field, a further supervisor and, where appropriate an additional advisor. Students will, of course, be able to access all the general support facilities on offer at the University. In both cases, research will be judged through presentation of a thesis or artefact and a viva voce for academic assessment.
