Philosophy

Research involves a complex and advanced project and is awarded to a candidate who, having critically investigated and evaluated an approved topic resulting in an independent and original contribution to knowledge and demonstrated an understanding of research methods appropriate to the chosen field, has presented and defended a thesis and/or practical element, by viva voce, to the satisfaction of the examiners.

Entry requirements

We would normally expect applicants to have an Honours degree at upper 2nd Class (2.1) and/or an appropriate Master's degree. Some supervisors may ask applicants for additional entry requirements such as relevant work experience, evidence of written work, or previous study of a particular subject. Entry requirements may vary so it is important to discuss applications in principle before submitting a formal application.
