What will I learn?

The Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) is a thesis-based research degree. You will work with a supervisor from the academic staff to develop an appropriate topic within the research focus areas for the School. The PhD program is individually designed and built around the methodological requirements of the research and the nature of the topic to be investigated, taking into account the background of the candidate.

Your thesis is expected to be a systematic, written presentation of the results of study, investigation and research, making a substantial and original contribution to the body of knowledge in the subject of the research.
