Career opportunities

Some MPhil students opt to progress to a PhD and an academic career.

Most do not take this route, but in undertaking a piece of independent research, they develop a portfolio of skills that made them highly desirable to other employers, from the civil service to think-tanks, from museums and archives to large business organisations.

The University has its own dedicated Careers Service that you would have full access to as a student and for two years after you graduate. At Manchester you will have access to a number of opportunities to help support you with your goals for the future.
