Teaching and learning

The award of Master of Philosophy (MPhil) follows one year of successful supervised research (longer if part-time), and the thesis is up to 50,000 words in length.

If you are thinking of applying to do a research degree in the Centre for Museology, you should look at the individual web profiles of our members of staff and get in touch with us if you would like to discuss your ideas.

Course Content

Research and teaching in the Centre for Museology are supported by rich resources within the University, in the collections of the the University of Manchester Library with its unique Special Collections housed in the refurbished Deansgate building, the Manchester Museum and theWhitworth Art Gallery , as well as in other distinguished Manchester archives.

Museums and Galleries

The programme is shaped by the rich and diverse ecology of museums in the city and the North West, which makes Manchester such an attractive place for museum studies. The Centre for Museology works in partnership with museums and galleries in Greater Manchester and beyond across three areas of activity: research, postgraduate teaching and professional development for the museum sector. In particular, the Centre works closely with the pre-eminent museums of the University of Manchester: the Manchester Museum and the Whitworth Art Gallery .

Postgraduate Training

Museology MPhil and PhD students attend research training sessions at artsmethods@manchester, which is the School's programme of skills training for postgraduates on both taught and research programmes. More information .

IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.

The IELTS test is most widely accepted by universities and is also accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK- learn more.
