The Master of Philosophy (MPhil) is a research-only degree, which culminates in a thesis and provides a pathway to the Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degree. The research for the MPhil culminates in a 120-point thesis. The thesis demonstrates the ability of the candidate to carry out supervised research in a sustained investigation, which contributes to the knowledge in the area of specialisation. It is conducted with a high level of skill in analysis and critical evaluation, and should provide evidence that the candidate is familiar with and has employed the most suitable research methods, and that the procedures are clearly of a master's degree level.
The MPhil is characterised by advanced study and original research in a discipline, and as such: demands knowledge of the wider subject in which the topic for intensive investigation is situated; requires sustained supervised research; includes pure or applied research, creative planning and design, practical work and original scholarship, with graduates demonstrating well-developed skills of research, critical analysis and application so as to demonstrate independence of thought in their area of specialisation; requires excellent communication skills for creating, synthesising, evaluating and persuading; expects a tangible output that pushes the boundaries of knowledge in a discipline or field of study.
