Doctoral Studies

Candidates are awarded a Ph.D. after a minimum residence of two years. Degrees are awarded on the basis of independent research culminating in a thesis which represents an original contribution in the selected field. Candidates are accepted after discussions/correspondence with the chairman of the Department. A detailed research proposal has to be prepared by the candidate and approved by the Department and the Faculty.

The research for the doctoral thesis is undertaken under the supervision of a supervisor (promoter) appointed by the University on the recommendation of the Department. The supervisor may be assisted by other faculty members, depending on the nature of the research guidance required. Applications can be submitted at any time of the year. Registration is possible from the beginning or middle of the year. Please contact the Department for further information.
