PhD Study

As part of a world-class research institution, we offer supervision to PhD and Masters-level Research candidates at the University of Sydney.
You can study full-time or part-time, and some of your research can be carried out outside of Sydney, if applicable. You can also carry out a project in collaboration with an external organisation (eg. a company, university, school district or community group).

A PhD normally takes 3-4 years (full-time) or 5-6 years (part-time) and a Masters (research) takes between 1-3 years.

Research degree enrolments are managed through one of the University of Sydney’s faculties. In the first instance, please contact the member of academic staff whose interests most closely match your own. They can help you develop your ideas, and shape up an outline research proposal.
