Doing your PhD

Research degree schedule

We expect a full-time PhD student to submit a thesis within three years and to have completed (including the viva examination and any amendments) within four. Most full-time MPhil/PhD students are registered for three years under full fees. A fourth, additional year may sometimes be required under ‘continuation status’ at the recommendation of the supervisor/s.
