What will I learn?
The PhD is a University-wide degree which involves an intense period of supervised study and research, culminating in the submission of a thesis. The degree is awarded to candidates who, through original investigation, make a distinct and significant contribution to knowledge in their field of specialisation.
This research degree is undertaken wholly by thesis. A PhD thesis is normally a work of 80,000-100,000 words.
Non-traditional thesis: While the doctoral thesis is normally written in dissertation style, candidates may, if they wish, illustrate their argument by also submitting creative work. The non-traditional material is considered a minor component of the thesis and is equivalent to a maximum of 30,000 words. Applicants should contact the research degrees administrator for further information about non-traditional formats for thesis presentation.
The Doctor of Philosophy is structured in three phases. Phase 1 involves the development of a number of advanced research skills and capabilities. At the beginning of the program, each student negotiates a doctoral study plan with their supervisor. This plan makes explicit the kinds of support each student requires. A formal doctoral assessment is undertaken at the end of Phase 1 in which the candidates present a full proposal for assessment, which is a prerequisite for entering Phase 2.
This research degree is especially valuable for those wishing to pursue an academic career, a career in research or an advanced level of professional practice.
