Course Outline

We offer two different programmes of postgraduate study, each 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.

- DPhil – 3 academic years of full-time study or 6 years of part-time study.
- MPhil – 2 academic years of full-time study or 4 years of part-time study.

Postgraduate students wishing to register for a DPhil must first register for the MPhil and seek conversion at a later stage.

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
