The MPhil in Political Thought and Intellectual History is aimed at students who have an interest in both the theory and history of political thought (including those wider intellectual idioms which provide the context for its development). It also welcomes students whose previous study had a more specialised historical or theoretical (or philosophical) bent, provided that while doing this course they are willing to engage with both approaches to research.
The MPhil in Political Thought and Intellectual History attracts students from all over the world, and its training provides an ideal foundation from which to proceed to doctoral research, not only in the United Kingdom, but around the world.
Applicants for this course should have achieved a UK High II.i Honours Degree.
If your degree is not from the UK, please check International Qualifications to find the equivalent in your country.
Applicants should normally hold at least a high upper second-class degree from a UK University (usually 67 per cent) or international equivalent as set by the University Graduate Admissions Office (see the International Qualifications page on the Graduate Admissions website for international equivalencies).
