Research Postgraduate Programmes
The Department admits both MPhil and PhD students. The normal duration of study for an MPhil degree is two years and for a PhD degree is three years for students with an MSc degree or four years for those with only a Bachelor's degree. Prospective students are advised to look up the publication list of departmental staff in the annual research reports to have a feel of the research focuses of individual academic staff members and contact them for more details before they apply. Full-time research students are normally offered a stipend.
