Psychology

Biodiversity, Environmental Change & the Green Economy; Creative, Digital & Cognitive Science and Technology & Design are some of the many research themes in the Faculty of Science & Technology. A Master of Philosophy (MPhil) is an opportunity to critically investigate and evaluate a specific topic in one of our specialisms with a research supervisor. We strongly support collaboration across specialisms, both within our faculty and across the university as a whole, giving you plenty of scope to investigate a topic that you are passionate about. Many of our MPhil candidates will go on to complete their research as a PhD.

Entry requirements

An Honours degree at 2:1 or higher and a relevant Master's degree. If English is not your first language you'll need IELTS 6.5 (Academic) or above.

Course modules

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.

Assessment methods

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.
