Master of Philosophy - Science
- CRICOS Code: 061958G
What will I study?
Typically taken over 1.5 years full time (part time available for domestic students), you’ll be independently working on an innovative research project that results in a thesis, which will make a distinct contribution to knowledge in your field.
Undertake an MPhil in one of seven schools:
- Earth Sciences
- Ecosystem and Forest Sciences
- Mathematics and Statistics
The normal length of a MPhil thesis is 30,000–40,000 words.
The course includes regular progress reviews with a supervisory panel to ensure good progress towards completion of the thesis. Students can publish sections of their research thesis as they are completed.
The Master of Philosophy (Science) involves no compulsory coursework, though with approval students may be able to take coursework subjects that are relevant to their research.
