Course summary

The MPhil programme provides candidates with an opportunity to develop advanced and specific knowledge in a particular field of study. Students will have the freedom and flexibility to choose and develop their own subject area and enhance highly transferable research and project management skills.

The postgraduate research team within the School of Health and Social Care are committed to providing the best possible experience. Students are able to work alongside experienced academics who can help guide them through the research process and offer support on personal and professional development in order to maximise career opportunities on graduation.

Students are able to meet with and discuss their project with other research students both within the School and across the University. There are regular opportunities to attend research seminars hosted by the research groups within the School and wider College. The School also has close ties with the University's central Doctoral School, which provides a wealth of training programmes for all research students and the chance to present work at the annual research showcase.

How You Are Assessed

This programme is assessed by the submission of a written thesis (maximum 80,000 words), and normally an oral examination (viva voce). Students will be examined by two examiners, one internal to the University and one external. Following the oral examination it may be necessary to undertake some amendments to the thesis in order to completely satisfy the criteria for award.

Each student will have at least one monthly formal meeting with their supervisors where progress will be discussed. After three months students are expected to provide an outline of their research proposal, which will be evaluated. After the first year they may apply for transfer to a PhD programme via a written report and they will be orally examined.

Career and Personal Development

Students may choose to continue to build their research skills by pursuing a research career in either the academic or non-academic sectors. A wide range of industries and organisations look to employ graduates with research and analytical skills and the ability to manage complex and large scale projects.

If you are already in employment, successfully gaining your PhD may open up new opportunities and routes to progression.
