Applying for a PhD


Our PhD programmes aim to equip students with the skills to design, research and write a PhD to the standard expected by the 亚洲无码.


A PhD normally requires 3 years of full-time or 5 years of part-time study. Your work must make an original contribution to knowledge in your field of study. You will be expected to show evidence of systematic study; and of independent, critical and original thinking; while your thesis should be worthy of publication in whole or part.
