Postgraduate Research Degrees MPhil / PhD
What is special about this course?
Highland Theological College UHI has been supervising postgraduate students for a number of years. Since 2004, through our memorandum of agreement with UHI Millennium Institute (of which HTC is a constituent Academic Partner), HTC has been registering all of our MPhil/PhD students with the University of Aberdeen.
HTC must be satisfied that a prospective student is of the required academic standard to complete the scheme of research proposed. Students will be expected, therefore, to have completed an honours’ degree in theology at upper second class level (or the overseas equivalent).
Prospective PhD students who do not already have the MPhil degree or its equivalent (Th.M or M.Th) will be registered as M.Phil students until the completion of a probationary period, after which they can apply to be upgraded. This probationary period will normally be one year for full-time students and 18 months for part-time students.
Supervision of the degree will be carried out by the academic staff of the Highland Theological College, students will be registered with UHI and their programme will be administered by HTC/UHI. However, successful candidates will be awarded their MPhil or PhD degree from the University of Aberdeen.

Prospective students should, in the first instance, send a letter or email (email@example.com) expressing an interest in postgraduate study. This should be accompanied by a full CV (resumé), together with a 500 word outline of the proposed area of study.
Depending upon the total number of postgraduate student places and the availability of suitably qualified supervisors for the proposed topic, students will then be sent the appropriate application form, together with the prospectus and other relevant documentation.
