MPhil is designed for graduates who want to gain a strong knowledge and understanding of the subject and then take the discipline forward through an approved programme of original research.

New Route PhD is for recently qualified graduates with good honours degrees who are keen to progress immediately to a research experience in preparation for a career in which the ability to undertake research will play a key role.

Traditional Route PhD entails a programme of research which normally takes three years of full-time study. You can choose to take it part-time over a period of up to six years. The traditional route enables capable and qualified individuals to pursue an original research investigation into a chosen topic within a field of enquiry.
