Profile Description

Overview

Students carry out a supervised programme of research at the leading edge of their chosen subject. From an initial proposal, students design and conduct a research programme under the direction of one or two members of our academic staff. The PhD research is written up as a substantial thesis and assessed in an extensive oral examination. You can choose to study any topic in which we have research expertise. Details of research staff expertise and interests are available on individual staff pages.

Benefits of the MPhil and PhD

  • The opportunity to present your work and discuss it with other researchers working on similar topics and participate in departmental research centre activities.
  • The opportunity to develop skills and a broader knowledge base by contributing to teaching.
