Studying Mphil and working?

User: agnes1 - 08 March 2017 22:48

Hi, I'm a holder of Environmental Protection Enginering undergraduate degree and now I'm thinking about moving forward to do Mphil in Sustainable Development on Manchester University/Manchester Metropolotan University. My only concern is if studying part time will still allow me to work Monday-Friday office hours? To be honest I'm EU student and I don't have a clue about Mphil education system in UK , how does it work and if the studying is flexible enough to continue working. How many days per week do I need to spend physically at uni, do I conduct research writing it at home on free time ? Maybe I sound stupid asking for these things but I really do have no one here who may have this knowledge. Thanks a lot for all your advices.

Hi, so an MPhil or an MRes are research degrees, so you would have to conduct a research project. This would be difficult to do part time if you are not able to be at university at some point through the working week. Your supervisors would generally expect to see you and you would likely be expected to undertaking some mandatory training sessions within your department. The study is flexible, in that most people will not have set hours or days, but probably not so flexible that you can only work evenings and weekends. It's more like being part time you would be expected to be in 1-2 days a week, Mon to Fri.
