6 Interdisciplinary MPhils in a Coordinated Study of Emergent Behaviour

The University of Abertay has created a cross-campus research programme at the interface between traditional disciplines called White Space. These White Space projects link the activities of the internationally leading research centres at Abertay in a coordinated programme studying emergent behaviour. Up to 6 MPhil places are available covering a range of applications from applied psychology, economics, computer games technology and environmental science. Funding is available until 30 September 2007 to support study leading to the award of an MPhil degree. The funding provides a tax-free weekly stipend of around £55, UK/European student fees and other benefits. 

White Space students will occupy a new purpose-built open plan research centre with dedicated high performance computing facilities and state-of-the-art virtual environment cave.
