MPhil and PhD research requires a thirst for knowledge and a passion for research.

If you are interested in full or part time study for MPhil and PhD degrees in psychology we welcome an application from inquisitive and dedicated students.

Here at the University of Greenwich, we carry out high quality scientific research in psychology that moves theory forward while informing applied settings.

During your time with us, you will develop, create and interpret new knowledge in the subject of psychology. This will be through original research or other advanced scholarship of a quality to satisfy peer review. Your research will aim to extend the forefront of the discipline, and merit publication.

Our graduates from this programme pursue careers in research as well as teaching in further and higher education and other opportunities in both public and private sectors.

MPhil and PhD options

You will initially enrol onto the MPhil degree. After completing the first year of the MPhil, your progress will be reviewed. Upon satisfactory review, you will be given the option to then transfer to the PhD for a further two to three years of research.

Should you not wish to continue on to PhD studies, you may write up and submit your work to be considered for an MPhil degree.

Research supervision

Throughout your time with us, we will have three supervisors who will guide you through your research period and support your studies. When applying for an MPhil or PhD, you will need to identify a potential supervisor and submit a research proposal tailored to their research interests. One of the key factors is finding a primary supervisor that can provide the support to complement your research interests. If you do not have an idea of a potential supervisor yet, please make contact with a staff member to discuss how your research ideas could fit. Information about the Department's expertise can be found by visiting the staff profiles here.
