The MSc by Research is exactly like a doctorate, but with a research project designed to take less time (normally two years, though it is possible to complete the requirements in a single year). It is an alternative to a DPhil. There are no associated lectures, classes or written examinations. It can be in any of the subject areas for which supervision is available. Students will be admitted as a Probationer Research Student in the same way as those intending to do a DPhil, and the same standards are applied for admission for the two degrees. Thus, it may be possible to switch between the DPhil and the MSc by Research. The MSc by Research in Mathematics does not cover all subject areas within mathematics and therefore it is recommended that students enquire whether the MSc by Research in Mathematics is offered in the area/s of their interest before applying.
