Entry requirements

Doctor of Philosophy - PhD: You should have a track record of high academic achievement, demonstrated by a good undergraduate degree with a second class (upper division) pass or equivalent. A Masters-level degree in an academic discipline related is advisable. In exceptional cases, professional qualifications and experience in the proposed research area may compensate for the lack of a Master's degree.

Assessment methods

Students on graduate research programmes are initially registered for the degree of MPhil. Promotion to registration to PhD is not automatic, but contingent on the satisfactory outcome of a review process. This normally takes place towards the end of the first year of registration for full-time candidates and towards the end of the second year for part-time candidates. If the outcome is satisfactory, the student will be upgraded to PhD.
