Research degrees

Master/Doctor of Philosophy (MPhil/PhD)

By embarking on doctoral study, you commit a period of your life to conducting original research and deepening your expertise. It's demanding, but hugely rewarding. Doing so can set you on a path towards a career in academia, or becoming a highly-regarded advanced practitioner in your chosen field.

This is your time to progress from learning about a subject to actively contributing to the original thinking of it. At Regent's, you will have the space and the support to develop your expertise. Our leafy campus in central London provides an ideal backdrop to think and grow.

Your time with us can lead to the award of a Master of Philosophy (MPhil) or a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD).

For a PhD you will be assessed on your final thesis, which would typically be no more than 80,000 words. For an MPhil your thesis should be no more than 50,000 words.

You will study and be supervised by Regent’s academic staff at our campus in London. Please note that PhDs and MPhils conducted at Regent's University London are awarded by the University of Northampton.
