Course Summary

Students will work with a range of experts from across the natural and social sciences, whose cutting-edge original research has made a significant impact to individuals, institutions and societies around the world. Our research interests are in fields such as: environment, resources and mobilization; gender, sexuality and conflict; human rights and welfare; humanitarian design and citizen aid; markets, labour and finance; migration and mobility. For an MPhil, your work is an independent piece of research but in less depth than for a PhD. You will graduate with the degree title Master of Philosophy. You might be able to change to a PhD while you study for an MPhil.
