Description:The Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) program is designed to immerse students into further investigation and research, to build and support the programs of research at the University and to enliven the undergraduate learning environment.

The PhD program is thesis-based and offered in a number of areas of study. Depending on the academic background, students may be required to take up to six courses in their area of study; the number and details of the courses are determined at the time of admission to the program. Consequently, it is necessary for a prospective student to establish contact with a potential supervisor prior to application for admission. Prospective students seeking supervisors please visit Search Supervisors page.

The PhD program is administered centrally by the School of Graduate Studies rather than by individual departments or Faculties.
