Programme Structure

Structure

Year One (Years One and Two for part-time students)

On beginning the Ph.D. programme, a supervisory committee will be set up for each student consisting of the Director of Graduate Studies as chair, the student's main supervisor and a second supervisor. Where the Director of Graduate Studies is the main supervisor, the Head of School will act as chair.
By week 6 of the first semester after the student's registration, this committee will have produced a written document for the student's file, outlining work which the student is expected to have completed by the end of the first year (two years in the case of part-time students), such as a review of the literature on their chosen topic, and a report on their pilot study.
