The MA by Dissertation consists of a 30,000-word thesis, researched and written over a period of one year full-time or two years part-time.
The dissertation is the sole component of this degree; there is no taught element. It is read by one external and one internal examiner. The external is an expert in the field in which the dissertation is written.
There are no marks awarded and examiners decide solely on pass, fail or referral.
Prior to making an application, applicants are expected to consult other sections in this website for information on our areas of research and to contact potential supervisors to discuss the topic. General enquiries are welcome at any time to the postgraduate administrator or the director of MA studies, as appropriate.
This degree is designed for students who have already identified a specific research topic and who wish to focus exclusively on writing a thesis, working with a particular supervisor in our department.
