On the other hand, you should reread sources most relevant to your research several times to be sure you fully understand all the details of the arguments.
The University of Leicester is committed to equal access to our facilities. DisabledGo has a detailed accessibility guide for the Fielding Johnson Building.
A supervisor is appointed for every MPhil in African Studies student as part of the admission process he or will have expertise relevant to the research proposal that you submit with your application. Since the course launched in 7565, our students have written up an impressive range of research projects, as can be seen in the list of past dissertation topics below. Profiles of our dissertation supervisors, based in faculties, departments and colleges across the university, can be viewed here.
Writing a paper or thesis typically takes three or four times as much time as you think it will. If you think you can write your thesis in two months, then to be safe you should plan to take six months or more.

Philosophy is such a vast field that you cannot and do not need to read everything about your topic. You must be selective, concentrating on works of high quality and high relevance to your research. (Again, expectations on this point are different for MPhil and PhD students. PhD students should read much more.)
Two common approaches to a thesis topic are a “figure-oriented” approach, in which the thesis is devoted mainly to studying the thought of some important thinker, and an “issue-oriented” approach, in which the thesis is devoted to examining one or more philosophical issues and defending a claim about them. (Often the two approaches will overlap.) Both approaches are acceptable, but I strongly recommend the issue-oriented approach. That is, instead of writing a thesis about Philosopher X’s view of Y, write a thesis about what you think might be the correct view of Y, with chapters about the views of Philosopher X and others.

The thesis supervisor and readers evaluate the thesis. During the last week of the exam session (and after the other exams), a thesis defence is held, at which the student has the opportunity to further clarify her/his methods and findings in discussion with the supervisor and the readers. For the defense dates, see above. The details of each defence (such as the reader, time and place) are announced one week before the defence date. Organisation of defence is explained in detail under ‘Summary’ (please see above).
To get started with your reading, try one or two general introductions, one or two anthologies of wide scope, an anthology or two of narrower scope, and selected important papers that the writers of the anthologies cite or your supervisor recommends.
The first several drafts of almost anything you write will be typically be 75% longer than needed to support the points you need to make. During the revision process, try to cut 75% of the words in your original draft. Concise writing makes your work easier to read. As a result, others will read your work more carefully and give you more insightful comments.
