Sheffield Hallam University
Culture, Communication and Computing
A good first degree from a UK institution (normally a 1st or upper 2nd), or the overseas equivalent, to register for MPhil only or MPhil with the possibility of transfer to PhD. Only holders of a relevant UK Master's degree, which had a substantial research training element can apply for direct PhD registration. Overseas applicants from countries whose first language is not English must normally produce evidence of competence in English. An IELTS score of 6.0 with 5.5 in all skills (or equivalent) is the standard for non-native speakers of English. If your English language skill is currently below an IELTS score of 6.0 with a minimum of 5.5 in all skills we recommend you consider a Sheffield Hallam University pre-sessional English course which will enable you to achieve an equivalent English level.
Master of Philosophy (MPhil): candidates are required to critically investigate and evaluate an approved topic, to demonstrate an understanding of research methods appropriate to their chosen field and to present and defend a thesis by oral examination.
Doctor of Philosophy (PhD): as MPhil plus PhD candidates are expected to make an independent and original contribution to knowledge.
Training is followed by theoretical and textual research, analysis and writing, working closely with the supervisors. Students are expected to present seminar papers on their work and to submit written papers for comment.
Thesis followed by oral examination.
