Course Summary

We aspire to challenge the boundaries of the international relations discipline and make the world a better place.

You’ll benefit from our strong international networks. We’ve undertaken consultancy and commissioned work in a range of fields including:

  • human rights
  • development studies
  • security.

Join our expert faculty and lively community of doctoral researchers – you’ll be exposed to ideas at the cutting edge of the discipline. Our policy and public impact work is world leading.

For an MPhil, your work is an independent piece of research but in less depth than for a PhD. You’ll graduate with the degree title Master of Philosophy. You might be able to change to a PhD while you study for an MPhil.
