The Doctor of Philosophy is part of a combined set of programs that offer students a pathway into a higher degree by research from an undergraduate degree.

As a Doctor of Philosophy candidate you will undertake supervised research with the aim of making a significant and original contribution to a discipline or profession.

Candidates undertake research, which may be pure, exploratory, applied, experimental and/or creative. They must submit a written research thesis, or a written research thesis including associated papers, of between 70,000 and 100,000 words.

Swinburne Open Day
It's your opportunity to see Swinburne up close. Speak to academics, hear about postgrad projects and glimpse your future. Come to Hawthorn, Sunday 28 July. Plan my Open Day

Applicants may also be interested in the non-integrated Doctor of Philosophy (Information and Communication Technology) program, which offers qualified candidates direct entry to the PhD.
