What will I learn?

A Master of Philosophy (MPhil) is a great option if you are interested in building your research skills while setting yourself up for the opportunity to advance to a PhD.

Our Master of Philosophy is personalised and innovatively designed to recognise the broad diversity of applicants' skills and background experiences, understanding each student has unique career aspirations.

Each of our faculties offers a Master of Philosophy, but if you're not sure what you'd like to specialise in there is also the option of a non-specialised degree.
