However, the best sources of practical information for current postgraduate students are the dedicated Moodle course sites (Raven log-in required) which all students are expected to visit:

These pages contain the relevant course handbook, with dates for submission of work, format of work, Department and Faculty administration, as well as resources, and a chat room.

MPhil students can also find submission forms, essay topics and sample essays on their Moodle site.


Prospective Graduates can find information on how to apply, here.
