About the course

Students on the MPhil, PhD and MA in Philosophy by Research follow an approved programme of research supervised by a member of academic staff and informed by a Thesis Advisory Panel. Alongside this academic support, students are supported by a programme of training in research methods and transferable skills. Students are assessed solely on the basis of their research, which must include original work, by at least two individually appointed examiners, one of whom will be external to the University.

Entry Requirements

The minimum requirements for admission to the programmes are an upper second or first class (or equivalent) undergraduate degree in any subject. However, for research degrees we require a prior qualification in philosophy with an average mark of at least 60 (normally a BA for the MA by Research and an MA for the MPhil and PhD), a satisfactory research proposal of 1,000 - 2,000 words, and for students whose first language is not English, meeting the Department's English language requirement.
