Course Overview
The Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) is awarded in recognition of
a candidate's erudition in a broad field of learning and for
notable accomplishment in that field through an original and
substantial contribution to knowledge.

The candidate's research must reveal high critical ability
and powers of imagination and synthesis and may be in the
form of new knowledge or significant and original
adaptation, application and interpretation of existing
knowledge.

Topics can include multidisciplinary problems suggested by
external bodies, for example, industry, government and
commerce, with joint supervisors from both academic and
outside environments. The candidate's doctoral work can
be undertaken either on campus or at an off-campus
location approved by QUT. The candidate's PhD will be
linked with one of the Faculty's research areas.

Entry Requirements
Applicants must have a relevant first- or second-class
division A honours degree or equivalent from QUT or
another recognised institution.

Research Area
Areas of research interest and contact details can be
obtained from the Faculty website.

Course Structure
The length of the program is generally three years full-time
(including one year of provisional registration) or six years
part-time (including 24 months of provisional registration).

Assessment for the doctoral award is based on a program
of supervised research and investigation, culminating in a
thesis.

Programs may include some coursework in support of the
conduct of research and preparation of the thesis.
Candidates are required to have regular, face-to-face
interaction with supervisors and to participate in University
scholarly activities such as research seminars, teaching and
publication.
