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.
A good Honours degree, defined as a 1st Class or 2nd Class Honours degree, in English or a relevant subject discipline. Holders of other qualifications will be considered individually. Entry requirements for international students whose 1st language is not English include an IELTS overall score of 7.0 with a minimum of 7.0 in reading and writing. International students can also be accepted if they have completed an English-medium degree with a significant research element.
This programme is not modular.
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.
