Future Doctor of Philosophy Students
The minimum entry requirement for a PhD is a 4-year Bachelor’s degree with First or Upper Second Class honours or completion of a Bachelor degree and substantial laboratory experience.
Further information can be obtained from the Graduate Research School.
The Doctoral degree programs within the School of Biotechnology and Biomolecular Sciences provide the highest level of training in key areas of scientific research. Students work on an independent research project encompassing the broader interests of one of the research teams within the School. In the early stages of the program, students receive close supervision and guidance in the management of their project. In the later stages, however, students are encouraged to exercise initiative and demonstrate originality. In the last year of the program, the candidate should be able to work independently and be guided rather than directed by the supervisor.

A Doctor of Philosophy Degree requires three years full-time study and completion of a written thesis. The length of a doctoral thesis is normally around 100,000 words. The thesis is reviewed by members of the Australian and international scientific academic community. In the course of their research, PhD students must make a distinct contribution to the knowledge within their specific discipline. Ideally, this will result in the publication of original research findings in peer-reviewed journals of international standing.
