Students who have completed the MPhil may continue to build their doctoral thesis on the same research basis. In that case, they may apply to waive Transfer of Status and proceed directly to Confirmation of Status. In some cases, the research basis of the MPhil may not lead to any significant repetition of the prose submitted in the MPhil thesis. In other cases, it may be appropriate to repeat work written for this thesis. In such cases, it may not constitute more than 30% (30,000 words) of the DPhil thesis.
