Postgraduate Admissions

Teaching

This course is exclusively by research.

One to one supervision

Each student is assigned a principal supervisor and supervisory meetings are arranged by mutual agreement.

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

Seminars & classes

Students are strongly encouraged to participate in the Goldsmiths' Seminar Series, especially those lectures that are in their area of research interest.

Lectures

There are no compulsory lecture courses associated with this course but MPhil students are encouraged to attend undergraduate and postgraduate lecture courses (space permitting) that are relevant to their studies.

Feedback

Students can expect a formal discussion with their supervisor, and a written report (via the University's online system) on their progress, at least once a term. Written feedback will be provided on drafts of the thesis.

Assessment

Thesis / Dissertation

Assessment is by submission of a thesis of not more than 15,000 words on a topic approved by the Degree Committee for the Faculty of Physics and Chemistry. The thesis is examined in an oral examination by two examiners appointed individually for each candidate.
