MASTER OF PHILOSOPHY
The Master of Philosophy (MPhil) is a postgraduate research degree. Entry to the MPhil is available to students who have completed at least a 3 year BSc in Physics with a credit or higher average (or equivalent). This is the same requirement as entry for Physics honours.
Features of the MPhil:
It is 3 sessions (72 Units of Credit - UOC) long. It can be started in February or July.
Although the MPhil is a research degree, you have to complete 24 UOC worth of courses which are usually four postgraduate courses (in areas such as Theoretical Physics, Astrophysics, or Solid State Physics). (However, the School or your supervisor may recommend that you do other postgraduate courses.)
You complete 1 research project over the 3 sessions. Your thesis is assessed by two examiners, both external to the University.
How To Apply
Entry to the MPhil is through a postgraduate research application directly to UNSW.
