Assessment methods

The award of MPhil is made on a pass/fail basis and is not graded. Units of the taught component are assessed by coursework and/or examination. A candidate who achieves an overall unit mark of 40% or above is considered to have passed the unit. Each thesis is assessed on an individual basis by an internal examiner and an external examiner appointed by the Board of Studies. The assessment procedure and possible outcomes follows the MPhil model. An interim project report is submitted by the candidate after approximately 12 months. This is used to monitor progress and form the basis of feedback to the candidate. Where the quality of the work is appropriate it is possible to extend the project to PhD level.
