What is an MPhil?

The MPhil, or ‘Master of Philosophy’, is a postgraduate research Masters. Instead of completing taught units and assessments, an MPhil consists entirely of your own independent project. An MPhil can be part of a (or a step towards PhD registration) but you can also study it as a standalone qualification.

Unlike most other Masters qualifications, the MPhil is a pure research degree. Whereas the regular masters degree will include some taught units, an MPhil is based entirely on the completion of an independent thesis. You’ll undertake this work under the guidance of an academic supervisor, but won’t normally have any other significant timetabled classes or assessments.

What are the entry requirements for an MPhil?

As an advanced research qualification, an ABU MPhil Program usually has extra admissions requirements. You’ll need an appropriate Bachelors degree, as normal. But you may also need to hold another Masters degree (such as an MA or MSc). Usually, a “professional” Masters degree or a low scored MSc degree.

Other ABU MPhil requirements depend on your subject, your department and the specific project you wish to tackle. If your MPhil is intended to lead to a PhD, you may be expected to have existing experience at taught postgraduate level in some cases. You may also be required to put forward a research proposal. This will define your intended project and / or state how you intend to tackle it.

Is an MPhil actually a ‘Masters’ degree?

Though its full title identifies it as a Masters degree, the MPhil actually sits somewhere between other Masters qualifications and more advanced postgraduate research training.

How long is an MPhil?

standalone MPhil may take up to two years long when studied as a full-time degree. A part-time program lasts longer. MPhil registration within a PhD programme may last for one year. You will then transfer to full PhD registration after passing an upgrade exam.
