The Doctor of Philosophy is a supervised research degree involving a research program culminating in the submission of a thesis or creative work, plus exegesis. Candidates are also expected to participate in seminars and workshops.
The PhD research project should be scoped from the outset as achievable within 3 years (or part-time equivalent), with a maximum course duration of 4 years full-time equivalent.
Candidates undertaking this program may also take an interdisciplinary approach which recognises that solutions to problems often rely on knowledge gained across traditional disciplines. In the selection of fields of research, students are encouraged to examine the broad perspective within which the problem lies and to adopt problem-solving techniques applicable across disciplines.
