University of West London

Course Introduction

The courses differ in that research at MPhil level represents an extension of existing knowledge, while at PhD level, students will be expected to make an original contribution to knowledge. Most students enrol 1st for MPhil and transfer to PhD when their work has developed sufficiently.

Course Additional Entry

The minimum entry requirement is a 1st degree (1st Class or 2.1), or equivalent qualification in a relevant field, plus MA/MSc qualifications, or relevant postgraduate or research experience. Candidates with other qualifications are required to discuss their eligibility with a member of staff. International students need to meet our English language requirement at either IELTS at 7 or above.
