Course description

Successful completion of the program will signify that the candidate has successfully completed a course of research training and satisfied the examiners that he/she can carry out a research project and critically analyse the results.

While it is not necessary that an MPhil thesis would make a major contribution to the discipline by way of new knowledge (as a PhD would require), an MPhil thesis would be expected to make a contribution to an existing body of knowledge, by applying, clarifying, critiquing or interpreting that knowledge.

In fulfilling the requirements for supervised study and research at the university, a candidate is required to be present at Monash University Malaysia on a regular basis and to be involved in the intellectual life of the university and the relevant School.

Course structure

The MPhil is a 100 per cent research program. A research candidate is required to undertake a program of supervised research within a school of the faculty resulting in the completion of a major thesis, of a maximum of 50,000 words.
