Course content

The MPhil and PhD degree programmes enable students to study a chosen area of research with leading researchers in the Department. These degrees are awarded in either Electronic Engineering or Music Technology following the successful submission of a thesis and subsequent oral examination. The PhD degree is a three year full-time or six year part-time programme. The MPhil is a two-year full-time (or four-year part-time) research programme that is undertaken and examined in a similar way to the PhD, but of a smaller body of work.

All PhD and MPhil students are subject to formal reviews of progress. The purpose of formal reviews of progress is to ensure that students are making satisfactory progress with their research project and other elements of their PhD or MPhil programme. The progress of all research students is continually guided by a supervisor and a thesis advisory panel.
