Course Overview

Similar to a PhD, you will have the opportunity to pursue an area of interest under the guidance of a supervisor, and you will still be required to defend your thesis in a viva voce exam; however, an MPhil involves conducting less in-depth analysis than a PhD does.

Teaching & Learning

Your research will be guided by a supervisory team, who will help you refine your research proposal, and guide you in data collection and analysis. At the end of your studies, you will have a viva voce exam (a verbal defence of your thesis).
