Doctoral Degrees are the highest supervised degree offered by Te Whare Wānanga o Awanuiārangi. The PhD is awarded for a thesis that demonstrates a candidate’s ability to carry out independent research and analysis at an advanced level of study in a particular discipline and/or field. 

The PhD degree normally involves a minimum of three years’ full-time research and six years’ maximum. The 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. Students with relevant experience and backgrounds in other fields plus a graduate qualification may also apply.
