We offer the DPhil in International Affairs programme in English, leading to the degree conferred by our British partner, The University of Buckingham. The programme requires an original contribution to the body of knowledge in a particular academic or professional discipline.
DPhil students undertake supervised but independent research, at the end of which they submit a thesis of not more than 100,000 words embodying the results of that research. This thesis must demonstrate familiarity with, and an understanding of the subject, its principal sources and authorities. It should display critical discrimination and a sense of proportion in evaluating evidence and the judgements of others. A DPhil thesis must embody an original contribution to the knowledge of art history either by the discovery of new knowledge, or by the exercise of a new and independent critical approach.
