University of Greenwich

Course Introduction

Each student normally first enrols on the MPhil degree. After completing the first year of the MPhil, the student's progress is reviewed, and, if considered satisfactory, the student is permitted to transfer to the PhD for a further 2 to 3 years of research. A student who does not wish to continue at this point may write up and submit the work to be considered for an MPhil degree. MPhil/PhD students are usually provided with two supervisors, who guide them through the research. The supervisors are usually research staff from within the School, although a supervisor may be appointed from another School or from outside the university.
