Course summary

The aim of any research degree is to carry out a programme of research that furthers knowledge in your chosen subject field. During this time, you will work under the supervision of a primary supervisor and one or more co-supervisors who are experts in the same field, sometimes as part of a team, with other students and staff. The Master of Philosophy is awarded on the basis of a thesis (200 pages or 60,000 words) and examiners must be satisfied that you have been able to interpret and communicate knowledge through research and/or scholarship of publishable quality which would satisfy peer review, and which might reasonably be expected to be completed after two or up to three years of full-time study (four or up to six years for part-time study). You must also satisfy the examiners that you possess a good general knowledge in your area of research. This degree would be suitable if you have 2 years of sponsorship for your research degree study.
