Doctoral Study

Our doctoral programme is an exciting opportunity to pursue independent research at the frontline of knowledge. Our students gain expertise in a specific field of knowledge and advanced research skills relevant to positioning the impact of their research in a broader context. They also build transferable skills in project design and management, writing for academic audiences, and skills for communicating beyond the academy. Our program is geared to build your career from day one, including through opportunities for teaching through face-to-face and online modes of delivery.

We are committed to supporting you throughout all aspects of your programme of study. Each student is supported academically by a supervisory team, and our students participate in a diverse forum of intellectual debate. We open the process of research, and our PhD students actively engage work on everything from work-in-progress to presentations by invited speakers. Our doctoral community is itself active in defining and leading research activities, such as seminars and workshops.
