Course info

Summary

The PhD is a globally recognised postgraduate research degree, the highest level of degree you can achieve. PhD students are critical, curious, creative thinkers who undertake original research over at least 3 years. As well as your supervised original research, through your doctoral programme you will have opportunities to expand and develop your personal and professional skills. Doctoral candidates present their work at local and international conferences, and are encouraged to network and collaborate with a wide range of experts in their research field.

This course is also offered at overseas.

Forensic Science

As our knowledge and technical expertise in science increases, so does the complexity and importance of the science presented to the courts in the legal system.

The Forensic Science programme is jointly run by the University of Auckland and the Institute of Environmental Science and Research (ESR) (the suppliers of forensic science to the New Zealand Police). Students benefit from expert guest lecturers, including Crown Prosecutors and independent forensic practitioners.

Where can Forensic Science take you?

Our graduates can be found in forensic science organisations, the New Zealand Police, academic and commercial science organisations and government agencies.

The University of Auckland PhD is a three-to-four year full-time advanced research degree.

On entry to the PhD programme, you will be enrolled provisionally.

The central School of Graduate Studies provides dedicated support and advice for the doctoral community.
