Moving from MPhil to PhD: surviving the upgrade examination

The upgrade process is something that every PhD student will face – after 12 months for full-time students and 18 months for part-time students. In this session, a selection of upgrade examiners, and some recently successful students will give advice and tips on what to expect from your upgrade, and how to be prepared.
