Course code – MDPSM1 We offer a one-year, full time research-based MPhil in Medical Science (Psychiatry). As with a doctoral programme, if you are contemplating an MPhil in the Department of Psychiatry it is important to identify a researcher who is working in an area of research of mutual interest and willing to be a supervisor. We therefore encourage you to find out about the research groups within the Department by looking at our web pages and other background reading. You should then contact potential supervisors to find out about the possibility of working with them or someone in their group. Applications for an MPhil in the Department of Psychiatry will not be accepted without a named supervisor. The Department does not currently offer a taught MPhil programme. Starting dates The Cambridge academic year starts on the first Tuesday of October and is divided into three terms (October Michaelmas term, January Lent term and April Easter term). The closing date for all October applications is 30th June . Part time applicants The Department accepts part time, two-year MPhil applications. Further information on part time research degrees are available from Graduate Admissions Course work There is no formal programme of lectures but each research student is encouraged to develop an individually tailored programme of lectures and courses that enhance their background in science and in transferable skills essential for future career development.
