Master of Philosophy (MPhil)

A two-year programme

Studying for an MPhil commits you to two years full-time study and to writing a thesis of up to 60,000 words.  (Part-time study is also available, but not for those who require a Tier 4 visa.)

You will have regular 1:1 supervision and work with advice from two supervisors. 

During the first year you explore your chosen area of research and refine your research proposal.  At around the nine-month mark, you will submit a draft chapter for discussion at a Review Board, together with a developed proposal for the whole thesis.  On the basis of your progress-to date, and the prospects for your research, the Review Board will make recommendations on the continuation of your studies into the second year.
