All students initially enrol on the MPhil programme and subsequently upgrade to PhD status if their work is considered to be at the appropriate level. You can study full-time or part-time and can apply to upgrade to PhD registration usually after 18 months (full-time) or 24 months (part-time). All students are supervised by a full-time member of staff, generally agreed during the preliminary discussion regarding your research with the Department´s Director of Postgraduate Studies.
All students enrolled on the programme are required to attend a weekly seminar in research methodology. This seminar is designed to bring together research students with diverse interests in a co-operative and stimulating environment. Its objectives include training students for the Spring Review Week, written and oral presentations, preparation for upgrading procedures, and publication of articles.
