Research degrees differ from taught degrees in that most of the students' time is devoted to the individual pursuit of a research project. The students work independently carrying out research, experimentation and data-gathering in their chosen field. However, each student's supervisors will provide close support and mentoring throughout. Examination is by thesis and by viva voce if required by the examiners.

Entry requirements

A 1st Class or upper 2nd Class Honours degree in English or a relevant discipline is required. Holders of other qualifications will be considered individually. International students whose 1st language is not English require an IELTS overall score of 7 with a 7 in reading and writing. International students can also be accepted if they have completed an English-medium degree with a significant research element.

Assessment methods

Supervised by a panel of experienced researchers you will meet regularly with your first supervisor and present your work-in-progress to the full panel halfway through your registration period. Following advice from this Review meeting you will complete the writing up of your 25-30,000-word dissertation. There are no exams.
