Applicants should, at a minimum, have an Upper Second Class undergraduate degree plus a merit in a Masters degree in an academic discipline related to the proposed research topic. We will also accept the overseas equivalent of UK qualifications. In exceptional cases, professional qualifications and experience in the proposed research area may compensate for the lack of a Master's degree, or a grade below that specified above.
For full details about the City PhD programme structure, please see the Guide for Research Students
As a student on our graduate research programme, you are initially registered for an MPhil award. Progression to PhD registration is not automatic, but contingent on the satisfactory outcome of a review process. This takes place towards the end of the first year of your registration for full-time candidates. You will submit a substantial formally constructed upgrade or transfer document for assessment to an academic panel and present at the annual research colloquium.
Subject to demonstrating, both in writing and presentation, the intellectual and methodological ability and motivation to complete a PhD and providing a viable timetabled plan for timely completion of the research, you will be upgraded to PhD. Your progress is periodically assessed during years two and three of research. This also ensures that you are receiving appropriate levels of supervision, training, and practical support. Your doctoral studies will conclude with submission of your completed research in the form of a PhD thesis or dissertation and attendance at a viva voce examination in front of at least two examiners, at least one of whom will be external to City.
