Course content

The Master of Philosophy (MPhil) and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) are higher degrees obtained by research. Both offer an excellent opportunity to study a topic in-depth and at the same time, develop your intellectual, technical and managerial skills.
The two courses differ slightly in that research at the MPhil level represents an extension of existing knowledge, while at the PhD level you 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 you are appropriately qualified.
