Postgraduate Admissions

Teaching

One to one supervision

The University of Cambridge publishes an annual Code of Practice which sets out the University’s expectations regarding supervision.

Feedback

Students can expect to receive an online feedback report each term.

The supervisor will provide written feedback to the student each term with progress reports submitted online. The feedback will relate to the progress the student has made and include a specific comment on their research project. This will be discussed with the student in advance of the submission of the report to the University.

Assessment

Thesis / Dissertation

All students must submit a thesis which should not exceed 60,000 words and which will be subject to an oral examination involving an internal and an external examiner.

Other

All students are probationary in their first year and must successfully pass the First Year Assessment to progress to PhD from the 2nd year.  The first year assessment is examined by viva by two examiners.
