If you want to take your research to the next level, we offer a transdisciplinary Master of Philosophy course.
Designed to keep pace with a changing world, this course gives you the opportunity to complete an internationally recognised graduate research degree. Our Master of Philosophy (MPhil) offers optional training opportunities and experiences, and distinct cohort models. It's a unique research degree that provides the ideal stepping-stone to a PhD or a smooth transition to industry.
As an MPhil student, you'll normally:
Depending on the faculty you study in, you can either design your own topic for research, or choose from suggested student topics. If you are designing your own topic, we strongly suggest aligning the topic with one of our research areas.
You'll graduate with a specialisation on your testamur, depending on your research area. Alternatively, you can complete a non-specialised MPhil.
An MPhil is ideal if you want to:
Before considering an MPhil, you should read the Master of Philosophy course regulations (PDF file, 136.37 KB).
To be eligible for this course, you need either:
You can complete your MPhil within 18 months full time (3 years part time), but you can take up to 2 years full time (or 4 years part time) depending on your experience when you start studying.
Coursework units can make up 6 months of your MPhil. The coursework you need to complete will be informed by completion of your research degree skills audit, which you'll submit as part of your course application.
