Upgrades should take place between 9 and 18 months after initial registration for full time students, and between 25 and 40 months for part-time students. The process of MPhil to PhD Upgrade involves the student completing a written report and viva outlining the work accomplished so far and the programme of further work that will lead to a successful thesis. These components will then be considered by an upgrade panel.
Supervisors should consult the graduate tutor for advice on selection of suitable examiners for the upgrade panel.
