Your postgraduate programme

The University of Greenwich's preferred route to a doctorate (PhD) is, in the first instance, registration for an MPhil/PhD. Based on your progress at the MPhil stage of the programme, you can then apply to transfer to a PhD. Throughout the research project, we'll assign you a supervisory team, who will guide and advise you, help you shape ideas, and support your progress. You can take up to four years full-time or seven years part-time to complete a MPhil/PhD programme with us.
