All research students in the School are initially registered as MPhil/PhD students. Progression to PhD registration is the norm and we envisage that students will normally progress to PhD registration. As a rule the Department has an expectation that all full-time students will be considered for progression from MPhil to PhD registration within the first year of their registration and part-time students should be considered for progression after two years of registration.
