About

The Doctor of Philosophy (DPhil) in Geography and the Environment at University of Oxford is the department's premier research degree, awarded to candidates who have successfully completed a major piece of original research. 

Overview

The course provides support and an intellectual environment to pursue your own independent research.

Features 

  • The DPhil in Geography and the Environment at University of Oxford is offered as either a full-time three- to four-year degree, or a part-time six- to eight-year degree. 
  • As a part-time student you will be required to undertake at least 30 days of work physically at Oxford (or in direct collaboration with your supervisors, e.g. during fieldwork) each year. 

Programme Structure

Curriculum:

  • Part-time DPhil students receive an induction and are expected to attend the core DPhil seminars held in Michaelmas and Hilary Terms over their first two years of study to make sure that they receive this foundational material in the early stages of their programmes. 
  • There will be flexibility in the dates of attendance which will be determined by mutual agreement with your supervisor.
  • The DPhil is an advanced research degree which is awarded on the basis of a thesis and oral examination (assessment of other work is not taken into consideration). 
  • You are required to work independently, to take the initiative in exploring a line of research and to acquire new skills in order to carry out your research.
