A Practice-based PhD is available across all disciplines represented in the Faculty of Built Environment: Architecture, City Planning, Computational Design, Construction Management and Property, Industrial Design, Interior Architecture and Landscape Architecture.
In the same way as a traditional PhD, the primary aim of the Doctor of Philosophy (Practice-based) at the University of New South Wales is to contribute new knowledge to the field through systematic investigation. A candidate has the opportunity to apply the research value of the knowledge, skills and methodologies developed as a practitioner within a broader framework of critical enquiry and analysis.
It is expected that the candidate will generate a new body of ideas-based/creative work (the Project) and a written work (the Dissertation) that together will make an original contribution to knowledge within the field.
