The PhD degree normally involves a minimum of four year's full-time research and six year's maximum. Minimum period of enrolment is three years. Entrance into the doctoral programme is through a selection process overseen by the Doctoral Research Committee. Students interested in the PhD should have a relevant qualification through Masterate or Honours programmes.
