MPhil Computer Science / Overview

Year of entry: 2018

Degree awarded
MPhil
Duration
12 months full time
Entry requirements
The standard academic entry requirement for an MPhil or PhD is an Upper Second Class UK Honours degree or international equivalent in a relevant science or engineering discipline, or a first degree with an additional UK Masters degree or international equivalent.

The school may require a First Class Honours degree or international equivalent for some research projects. This requirement is specified at the discretion of the academic supervisor involved.

Whilst the most common first degree is Computer Science, we also consider students with backgrounds in an appropriate subject for the research topic (eg mathematics, physics, engineering, biology and medicine).

Programme description

The MPhil consists of one year of research culminating in an MPhil thesis and often leads to a full PhD.

As one of the largest Schools of in the UK we cover a huge spectrum of Computer Science topics. We currently have ten individual research groups ranging from Advanced Processor Technologies to Text Mining. Our core Computer Science research is augmented by interdisciplinary research taking place at the interface with discipline areas including mathematics, physics, medicine and biology. A detailed overview of the School's research groups and core and interdisciplinary research themes is available in the 'research' area of our website .    

We're keen to receive applications from potential research students in all areas. Although your application is through the School, you are basically applying for a place in a research group or with a particular supervisor. You therefore need to look through our research to find a suitable topic or potential supervisor. Alternatively you can identify a possible project from our list of available projects

Fees

For entry in the academic year beginning September 2018, the tuition fees are as follows:

  • MPhil (full-time)
    UK/EU students (per annum): TBA
    International students (per annum): £22,000
  • MPhil (part-time)
    UK/EU students (per annum): TBA
    International students (per annum): £11,000

Please note for the majority of projects where experimentation requires further resource: higher fee bands (where quoted) will be charged rather than the base rate for supervision, administration and computational costs. The fees quoted above will be fully inclusive and, therefore, you will not be required to pay any additional bench fees or administration costs.

All fees for entry will be subject to yearly review and incremental rises per annum are also likely over the duration of the course for UK/EU students (fees are typically fixed for International students, for the course duration at the year of entry). For general fees information please visit: postgraduate fees . Always contact the department if you are unsure which fee applies to your project.
