Research degrees are programmes of supervision,
available on a full- or part-time basis. Students will be registered
initially for the MPhil degree and subject to satisfactory work, will
subsequently be upgraded to that for the PhD degree.
The guidelines for the PhD are that it shall be a piece of work which can be researched and written within three or a maximum of four years (full-time students) and six years (part-time students). The maximum word length for a PhD thesis is 100,000 words. The outcome of the degree is an original piece of work.
