The University offers a comprehensive induction programme and a varied programme of generic skills training opportunities. You will be allocated up to three supervisors (including a Director of Studies) who will work with you during your research. Throughout your studies, you will also have the support of LJMU's Graduate School which offers expert advice and guidance to those enrolled on MPhil and PhD programmes.

To cater for the wide-ranging content of our courses and the varied learning preferences of our students, we offer a range of assessment methods on each programme. Assessment techniques vary from module to module to reflect relevant assessment approaches and the key learning points of each topic. Final examination for both the MPhil and the PhD is by thesis and oral examination. The MPhil differs from the PhD in terms of the depth of study required and the extent of your personal contribution to knowledge. It requires competence in conducting an independent enquiry as well as in the use of appropriate research methods and techniques. Examiners will expect you to display satisfactory background knowledge of the subject. To gain a PhD you are expected to show mastery of a special field and to have made an original personal contribution to the understanding of a problem, the advancement of knowledge, or the generation of new ideas. Examiners will expect you to be at the forefront of understanding in your chosen topic. If you are studying for an MPhil you may be able to progress to a PhD, via written and oral assessments in Year 2 (for full-time students) or Year 3 (for part-time students).
