Programme Structure

Courses include:

  • A Master of Philosophy comprises an independent, supervised research project mutually agreed upon by the student, their supervisors and Head of School. Students can choose to undertake the degree by either 100% research or, by mixed research and coursework. 
  • The award of the degree for students in the 100% research stream is entirely on the examination of a thesis, however, students in the mixed research and coursework stream complete one third of the degree (15 units) by coursework and the remaining two thirds of the degree by research resulting in the production of a proportionally smaller thesis
  •  Coursework can be selected, in consultation with supervisors, from amongst relevant Master by Coursework or Honours level courses offered by the University.
