Master of Philosophy candidates will be required to successfully complete three research methodology subjects, including qualitative and quantitative analysis, in the first year of candidature. A confirmation of candidature process occurs at the end of the first year of enrolment to evaluate progress and suitability to continue in the degree.

The Master of Philosophy dissertation should be a major, substantially original, theoretical or empirical study of an issue pertaining to the student’s major field of study. The Faculty expects students to work closely with staff and be exposed to the research activities of the staff and other students. It would not be uncommon for the student and the supervisor to be co-authors in publications resulting from the student’s dissertation.

Each student will be supervised by at least two appropriately qualified academic staff. The Faculty is responsible for approving the student’s dissertation proposal prior to the examination process.
