How long is the course and what are the term dates?
The DPhil is a three-year, full-time course. The MSc (Res) is normally a two-year course, though students with appropriate background in research may complete it in one year. Research degree programmes do not follow term dates as is the case with taught degrees. Students are expected to be in continuous attendance except during college closures and when a leave of absence has been agreed with their supervisor.
