Master of Research

The Master of Research enables you to complete a PhD in three years by providing a foundation of research preparation.

In the first year, you will be exposed to a unique combination of advanced methods and disciplinary coursework while concurrently developing a research proposal and improving your academic literacy skills. The course is also structured so that you will engage with issues associated with research ethics and integrity.

In the second year you will undertake a supervised research project and complete a 20,000-25,000 word thesis (or equivalent). There will also be a non-assessable structured learning component.
