  • Entry requirements

    Full entry requirements can be found under Section 2 of the Research Degree Regulations (B6) available at  /regulations/

    To summarise:

    • The minimum entry requirement for the degree of MPhil, or MPhil transferring to PhD, is a first-class or upper second-class UK honours degree or equivalent qualification.
    • Before being accepted, self-funded students should provide evidence that they are able to fund adequately the whole of their research degree programme.

    When can I apply?

    Research degrees normally start in September or January. You can apply at any time of year. Please allow at least four months between submitting your application and your expected start date so there is time to process your application, especially if you are an international student arranging a visa.
