What is a Master by Research via distance Learning?
The Master of Philosophy (MPhil) is a post-graduate Master by Research. The structure of MPhil is to carry out an academic research, carried out by the student independently, culminating in a Final Dissertation of at least 90 pages for the approval of Selinus University.
Admission requirements vary according to the country's frame work, so there is no unique requirement, and each university has its own system. In Selinus, to obtain an MPhil Degree by Research via Distance Learning, 40 Uniselinus Credits are required in addition to a Bachelor's or other Master's degree. We welcome applications from students who do not meet traditional requirements but who have relevant experience and ability to follow the course successfully. For this reason it is possible to also be admitted by APEL (Accreditation Prior Experiential Learning), provided that the validated credits are similar to the required discipline.
The Master of Philosophy (MPhil) represents a high level of academic specialization and is also useful for access to a PhD of each discipline. Candidates, thanks to their experience in the field, acquire a high disciplinary specialization, specific knowledge, and educational experience, elements that are completed in the final thesis of the Master.
The achievement of MPhil at Selinus University is based on the evaluation of the content of the thesis and its structure. In particular, in addition to the content, the originality of the subject, the order and structure, as well as the ability of autonomy of the candidate in carrying out the research, are evaluated. To be admitted to an MPhil program is required a minimum age of 25 years, completed or to be completed within the year of enrolment.
