Moving from MPhil to PhD: surviving the upgrade examination

Due to popular demand, we are repeating the session held in February for any students due to be upgraded from MPhil to PhD in the Autumn.

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.
