We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
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.
All applicants will have a formal interview with their prospective supervisor and another academic, normally the Director of Research Programmes. UK-based applicants will be invited to campus (we will reimburse reasonable travel expenses) and non-UK-based applicants will be interviewed
