The format of study for a research degree (MPhil/PhD) is very different from a taught degree. As a research student you will engage in a programme of independent research and/or creative work, with guidance from your supervisors. Meetings with supervisors take place at regular intervals throughout the registration period. During the first year of enrolment you will participate in an induction programme, undertake training in research methods and attend a series of seminars on research in your field. Workshops will also be provided on topics such as preparing a research proposal, presentation skills and writing skills. Full details on the Research Student Development Programme (RSDP) are available in the Falmouth Research Degrees Handbook.
