Conventional Research Postgraduate Programmes
The University offers Master of Philosophy (MPhil) and 3-year and 4-year Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) programmes. The programmes focus on research work and the award of the degree mainly depends on the assessment of the thesis. Candidates will conduct research work under the supervision of at least one member of the University’s teaching staff. In addition to the long-established one-to-one mentorship system of supervision, a coursework component has been introduced that aims to provide research training to assist the MPhil and 4-year PhD students to complete their studies within their study period.
As a research-led university with a global outlook that aims to excel in research and research postgraduate education, the University has in recent years enhanced its research collaborations with leading international higher education institutions. One such form of collaboration is to offer Joint programmes, e.g. Joint PhD Degree programmes, Joint Educational Placement / Programme for PhD. Please click here for more information.
