Higher degrees by research
We offer two postgraduate research degrees:
The Master of Philosophy (MPhil) is a two-year full-time (or part-time commitment), and teaches you about applying research methodology to critically evaluate literature and results in your field.
The Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) is our flagship research award and is the standard qualification for a research career or academic position.
By studying a research degree with the School of Computer Science, you can undertake a research project in an area of interest.
In either degree you’ll be supported by one of our research supervisors.
