Why choose this program?

The PhD by Prior Publication allows for formal recognition for established researchers who do not already hold a doctoral level qualification and who have substantial international standing in their respective fields based on their record of academic publication.

The degree will be awarded to a student who, through published work of which the student is either sole author or primary author, has made an original scholarly contribution to knowledge in a research area of strategic importance to the University and demonstrated a capacity for independent research.
