What will I study?


The MPhil degree is for students who want to deepen and cultivate their expertise and theoretical understanding within their chosen field. They will do so to an advanced level and seek to make a contribution to existing knowledge.

Appropriately experienced supervisors and an advisory committee support the candidate to plan and arrange a course of supervised research designed to suit their individual requirements and interests. Students progress through a series of milestones during their candidature that are designed to appraise, guide and strengthen their work towards completion.

The MPhil:

  • Is undertaken for up to 2 years (full-time equivalent) or up to 4 years (part-time)
  • Produces a thesis of 30,0000 - 40,000 words, developed under supervision, representing an original contribution to knowledge.

Candidates can propose research topics relevant to our core disciplines of architecture, landscape architecture, urban design, urban planning, property and construction and across a range of research themes.
