Course Outline

This programme of postgraduate study is available in either full-time or part-time mode. These are degrees by research which require an original contribution to the body of knowledge in a particular academic or professional discipline.

- PhD – 3 academic years of full-time study or 6 years of part-time study.

Students are registered initially for the degree of PhD (Doctor of Philosophy), although their status is probationary until the first Annual Review has taken place – normally between 12 and 18 months from first registration.

MPhil and DPhil students undertake supervised but independent research, at the end of which they submit a thesis embodying the results of that research. This thesis must demonstrate familiarity with, and an understanding of the subject, its principal sources and authorities. It should display critical discrimination and a sense of proportion in evaluating evidence and the judgements of others. A DPhil thesis must embody an original contribution to the knowledge of the discipline either by the discovery of new knowledge, or by the exercise of a new and independent critical approach.

In addition to Economics, International Studies and Security and Intelligence Studies, the University offers MPhil / DPhil programmes in the following Humanities areas:

  • Archaeology
  • Art History
  • Biography
  • English Literature
  • Garden History
  • History
  • Military History
