An MPhil means becoming an expert in a subject area, critically reviewing research in relation to a research question and carrying out a piece of research using suitable methods.
Undertaking an MPhil requires an excellent overview of existing research in your field and analytical skills in assessing research claims. You'll also need the ability and stamina of working independently and be in a position to afford the time investment pursuing an MPhil represents.
Although the Philosophy programme of London Metropolitan University is awarded for research with no taught component, as a research student, you'll be provided with research training and have access to any master's level modules that may facilitate your research. You can also study for a PG Cert in Learning and Teaching in Higher Education alongside your research.
London Met has a spirited and diverse community of research students and you'll be studying at an exciting time when the University is investing in research. As part of our Graduate School, you'll benefit from frequent events to enhance your personal development and help prepare you for life after the MPhil. You'll also benefit from our conferences, lecture series and research seminar series and be encouraged to present at our annual Student-Staff Research Conference.
Where this course can take you
People with a research degree may become lecturers, teachers or researchers, but these are by no means the only potential destinations.
Depending on your discipline, you may go into industry (this is frequently the case for graduates in biological or computer science), the City (business and law graduates), public sector management and/or policy-making (social science and business graduates), international governmental organisations (social science and business graduates), the social professions, or non-governmental organisations.
Many of our research graduates are mid-career and use their degree for career enhancement in (for example) the police or security services, education, counselling, health and social care, or diplomacy.
