Study options

  • You can undertake a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in any area of science.  You may find it helpful to view our list of potential PhD projects, or can discuss your own ideas with the School.
  • We also offer a Master of Philosophy, which is a program of independent, supervised research that can be taken in any discipline for which appropriate supervision is available and is assessed solely on the basis of a thesis. It is a highly flexible course that mirrors the structure and breadth of the Doctor of Philosophy.
