Course Description

MPhil / PhD routes

PhD students are registered for a minimum of two years and produce a thesis of up to 100,000 words. Progress is assessed annually and failure to pass the annual review will result in termination of the degree, or down-grading to an MPhil.

Students may also pursue an MPhil, resulting in a 60,000 word thesis. The MPhil is usually completed in two years.

Research training

The School also offers research training seminars and students also have access to training programmes offered by the graduate school. The University also has an early-career researchers’ network which provides peer-support for students.

Exceptional candidates working in areas of research deemed priority areas for the school may also be eligible to partial fee waiver scholarships at the discretion of the Programme Director.
