Was lernen Sie in diesem Kurs?



A PhD comprises an independent, supervised research project mutually agreed upon by the student, their supervisors and Head of School.
The PhD requires the development and implementation of a rigorous research plan, based on a comprehensive understanding of the relevant literature and the need for answers to questions posed in that literature or as a result of a new theory.
As you progress through the degree, you will complete a number of key milestones which will assist both yourself and the University to assess your progress and ensure that you are on track to complete in a timely manner.
The award of the degree is based entirely on the examination of a thesis by no fewer than two external expert examiners of international standing.
Acceptable thesis formats include a conventional written narrative, publication, combination and a major creative work plus exegesis.
In all cases, examiners assess the thesis on a number of key criteria including its capacity to make a significant and original contribution to knowledge in the chosen field of research.
The final outcome is determined by the University following review of all the examiners' reports.
Admission RequirementsA successful application to a PhD program involves a number of considerations:Academic background and ExperienceAn applicant must demonstrate that they have sufficient background and experience in independent supervised research to successfully complete a PhD as detailed in the academic program rules.
English Language Proficiency RequirementAs English is the language of instruction at the University of Adelaide, all applicants must provide evidence of their proficiency before an offer of a place is made.
Availability of supervision and resourcingIn addition to the academic requirements, the Head of School must certify that your proposed research project is acceptable to the School and that there are sufficient supervisory and other resources and facilities available to enable your candidature to be completed successfully.
Accordingly, discussing your research interests with your prospective supervisors/School is essential prior to submitting your PhD application.
