What are the course objectives?

You may undertake a programme of research in which your own work , such as a report , forms, as a point of origin or reference, a significant part of the intellectual enquiry and is presented for examination. The length of the thesis is reduced accordingly:

For the mixed mode version, you'll need an appropriate presentation of visual research and a text of up to 20,000 words (MPhil) or 40,000 (PhD).

For text only, the figures are 40,000 and 80,000 maximum.

The work is always undertaken as part of the registered research programme , and the standards are the same as those applied where the work is totally by thesis.

Please note that all of our PhD students initially enrol on an MPhil and then transfer to a PhD degree.

Requirements: At least a second class Honours Degree. PhD If you'd like to enrol for our PhD course, you'll first need to enrol for the MPhil and then transfer to a PhD once you've made enough progress with your research – typically after 18 24 months.
