The Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) course has been designed to be completed as either a full- time course or part-time course. The structure for each is indicated below with the inclusion of a non-credit marking thesis extension period.

A full-time student will normally complete within 6 to 8 semesters or enrolment (3 – 4 years). A part-time student will normally complete within 12 to 16 semesters (6 – 8 years)

PhD students enrol in the same Thesis unit each semester until a minimum of 300 credit points have been completed. All units are formally completed at the end of the thesis assessment process.
