Students are expected to carry out supervised research at the leading edge of their chosen subject. Most students are registered in the first instance for the degree of MPhil. The transfer from MPhil to PhD is subject to students passing an assessment process which normally involves submission of written work and an oral examination.
The final stage of the PhD degree is the oral or viva voce examination, in which students are required to defend the thesis to a Board of Examiners.
