Conversion to PhD

Students of the MPhil programme may convert their MPhil into a PhD candidate if they satisfy all the criteria below:

(a) Display excellent progress in their research.

(b) Able to demonstrate the potential of their project to be expended to PhD level.

(c) Pass a rigorous assessment.

Successful conversion means that the student will no longer be an MPhil candidate but will instead become a PhD candidate with their candidature start date backdated to their original MPhil registration date. Hence, it allows the student to gain a PhD award within a shorter timeframe, without the need to complete a Masters programme.
