Course Summary

The unique scope of a Master of Philosophy or MPhil programme makes it the most in-depth Master's study you can undertake and one which is distinct in its own right.

Like other research degrees, an MPhil allows you to conduct an independent, supervised research project which aims to make a considerable contribution in your chosen field.

It is a good choice if your project isn’t extensive enough for a PhD or perhaps you are looking for a shorter programme. A standalone MPhil normally takes two years when studied full time, or you can study for three to four years part-time.

For the MPhil, you will submit and defend via oral examination, a thesis of up to 60,000 words (as opposed to 100,000 for a PhD) demonstrating critical investigation and analysis of a topic. You will also demonstrate an understanding of appropriate research methods and their application to your chosen field.

Great reasons for studying an MPhil

You can complete your MPhil on a full or part time basis, on campus or by distance (if the nature of the research allows). There are no classes to attend as the MPhil is based on research so you can fit your research around other responsibilities.

An MPhil is a valuable standalone qualification which provides advanced research skills that are highly regarded by employers.
