Overview

Key Features

Alongside this academic support, students are supported by a programme of training in research methods and transferable skills. Students are assessed solely on the basis of their research, which must include original work, by at least two individually appointed examiners, one of whom will be external to the University.

For research degrees we require a prior qualification in philosophy with an average mark of at least 60 (normally a BA for the MA by Research and an MA for the MPhil and PhD and PhD by Distance Learning), a satisfactory research proposal of 1,000 - 2,000 words, and for students whose first language is not English, meeting the Department's English language requirement. Prospective students should consult the Departmental Requirements on the webpage below for the minimum level of English language proficiency required:
