If these are completed successfully you will produce an extended research proposal during the summer and will then enrol for an MPhil in Year Two.

The Film programme is offered by the University of Southampton.

You will then be upgraded to PhD status towards the end of Year Three if your work is progressing satisfactorily. 

This is an ideal pathway for those new to Film Studies and/or international students as it provides a detailed and intensive taught introduction to Film Studies and provides a series of possible ‘exit' points (MA; MPhil; PhD).

All of our research degrees can be taken on a part time basis. A part time PhD student would typically be enrolled for a period of seven years.

Our postgraduate students are an essential part of the Film and Humanities research community at Southampton.
