    About the course

    The Master of Philosophy is designed to allow graduates to undertake specialised studies to support their technical and professional development and their career aspirations. The Faculty offers the Master of Philosophy to applicants who wish to research an area closely associated with their undergraduate or postgraduate specialisation.

    General course objectives are to develop:

        * a specialised body of knowledge appropriate to a research career
        * skills of information gathering, processing and evaluation, and problem solving and communication skills

    The Master of Philosophy is currently available through all Schools in the Faculty of Science.

    Subject to regulation and approval, candidates may conduct their research at other places where adequate facilities and co-supervisors are available. The direction of the work remains under the control of the University supervisor.

    Students admitted to the research and thesis program will be required to submit a thesis embodying the results of an approved research project. A student may be required to undertake further support subjects to assist in the completion of the research project.

    Graduation requirements

    To graduate, students must satisfactorily complete a thesis equivalent to 128 points.
