Postgraduate Admissions

Teaching

The MPhil in Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology is a research-based degree. Students will carry out research under the supervision of the principal investigator.

One to one supervision

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

In most cases, students can expect at least two supervisions per full term across the duration of their course. Supervision reports are written once per term.

Seminars & classes

All of our MPhil CEB students are required to attend at least 50% of Department seminars during Michaelmas and Lent terms; lists of the seminars are provided at the start of each term.

MPhil students are expected to present their work as part of their assessment for the award of the degree.

Lectures

Our MPhil CEB programme is purely research-based with no taught components or lectures. Some academics will ask their students to attend some lectures that are relevant to the research, but in such cases, the student does not normally undertake coursework or exams.

Literature_reviews

All MPhil CEB students will provide a report three months into the course, which will contain a literature review.

Posters

MPhil students are expected to present their work as part of their assessment for the award of the degree.

Feedback

In most cases, students should expect at least two supervisions per full term across the duration of their course. Each student’s supervisor will provide a supervision report each term.

Assessment

Thesis / Dissertation

All MPhil CEB students complete a literature review and compile their findings in a short report that is submitted three months after the start of their course.

MPhil students are expected to present their work as part of their assessment for the award of the degree.
