Researching with the Faculty of Arts, you have the opportunity to either focus on theory or include a substantial creative component (creative works) in our Doctor of Philosophy.
We are committed to supporting our students and providing world class research faciliites. As a Faculty of Arts research student, you will also have access to additional study tools such as Skype access and group discussion areas in the research area in the Phoenix building. You will also be eligible for funding to attend conferences as well as for small equipment to assist with your research.
You will also have professional development opportunities to further develop your teaching, administration and service portfolio by contributing to school, faculty and University committees as well as the annual calendar of research events.
Postgraduate research students are supported by a team of two or more supervisors with expertise in their field of study. Students will need to complete the candidature confirmation process within the timelines relevant to the program of study. This involves preparing a confirmation proposal, oral presentation, and a panel review process. Confirmation and exit seminars are presented in November each year at a dedicated postgraduate symposium.
Doctoral students will also need to submit a progress report for each semester of study.
If your research will involve human participants or animals, you will need to consult with your supervisor before submitting an Ethics application form and then obtain approval from the relevant Ethics Committee.
