Course summary

An MPhil degree is taken in two years as a full-time student or in four years as a part-time student. The degree is awarded following the successful completion of a period of research which includes the submission of a thesis, and its subsequent oral examination, together with a series of Departmental reports and seminars. The thesis is expected to display a comprehensive particular knowledge of some part or aspect of the field of study, and to make some original contribution to knowledge or understanding.

The normal period of registration for part-time MPhil students is four years. The literature review seminar is preferably given after three months, and the qualifying dissertation is due after 18 months. The thesis proposal should be submitted after three years, while the thesis seminar is normally given in the fourth year.
