  • Transferring your degree only applies to students wishing to move from PhD to MPhil or another research doctorate or from MPhil to Masters (by Research).
  • It's best that you apply within the first six to 12 months of candidature.
  • Whenever you transfer or convert from one graduate research degree to another, it is considered a continuation of your student and any candidature time you have already completed will be credited in your new course.
