A Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) is an intensive research degree that normally takes between two and four years of fulltime study (or equivalent) to complete. It is geared towards high achieving students with a passion for research. A PhD provides an opportunity for students to undertake intensive research to produce an academic thesis as part of their study.
Students submit a thesis of not more than 100,000 words for examination. The thesis must make a significant contribution to knowledge and relate to the broader framework of the field within which it falls.
