Course Teaching and Delivery

The MPhil in Land Economy Research is an intensive ten month programme that runs from the beginning of October to the end of July each year.

Students on this course are required to:

  • Undertake a compulsory 18,000-20,000 word research dissertation.
    All students are required to submit a dissertation for examination. The dissertation will review literature and develop research hypotheses and possibly involve some preliminary data collection and analysis. It will be supervised by a member of academic staff within the Department. The submission date is the end of July.
  • Take two Land Economy MPhil modules chosen from a list of approved options.  These modules will be examined by project or essay or a combination of these forms. It is expected that the choice of modules available to Land Economy Research students in any given year will be those offered on the other MPhil courses in the Department.
    More information on modules offered.
  • In addition, students are able to participate in the Department’s Research Management Programme which covers issues of data collection and ethics.

It is anticipated that the research training provided by the SSRMC, plus the dissertation and the choice of specialised modules from the other Land Economy MPhils will provide the necessary and sufficient background for commencing PhD research.  However, continuation is not automatic and candidates must submit an application in the normal way if they wish to proceed to PhD (see below).
