Course Summary

The main focus of an MPhil is to carry out a unique research project, within any research area that is covered by one of our eight research themes. These involve cross-faculty collaboration and present an excellent opportunity to work on an impactful research project. You can be awarded a Master of Philosophy (MPhil) after critically investigating and evaluating an approved topic and demonstrating an understanding of research methods appropriate to your chosen field. You’ll be expected to present and defend a thesis and/or practical element, by viva voce (oral examination), to the satisfaction of the examiners. You can register to study for an MPhil on a full-time or part-time basis.

Your supervisory team will: Provide appropriate support and guidance regarding BU’s research degree regulations, policies and procedures; Give support when you are planning your research project, progressing through key milestones to successfully completing in the expected timeframe; Maintain regular contact with you and provide constructive feedback on written work and during meetings to support your progress; Advise you on professional and personal skill development training opportunities; Give guidance about attending and presenting your work at internal and external seminars and conferences; Advise on publication of your work in journals and other appropriate media. There is a vibrant research community within our Faculty of Management, with experts in the areas of tourism, leisure, economics, consumer behaviour, entrepreneurship, sport, disaster management and many others working on innovative and exciting research projects. By undertaking a Master of Philosophy (MPhil) with us you can tap into this expertise as you investigate and evaluate a topic that you are passionate about.

Career: Undertaking a research degree will not only allow you to carry out research in a specialist field, it will also equip you with a range of transferable skills that can be applied to roles within project management, commercial research and development, or consultancy services. You may also decide that you would like to pursue a career within academia, developing the research that you undertake during your MPhil and sharing your expertise with others who have an interest in a similar field.
