The Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degree is offered in all faculties of the University of New South Wales and encourages initiative and originality in research. Candidates should make a significant contribution to knowledge in their field.
As a general guide, the minimum requirement for a Postgraduate Research Degree (PhD, Master by Research or MPhil) within UNSW Built Environment is an appropriate undergraduate degree, usually at honours level, in a field represented within UNSW Built Environment, or another relevant discipline.
Candidates may be admitted to the PhD program after one year’s full-time enrolment in a Masters by Research program, with the approval of the Faculty Research Committee. In exceptional cases an applicant who submits evidence of such other academic and professional qualifications as may be approved by the Committee may be permitted to enrol for the degree.
English language requirements also apply. Please see: Graduate Research School
UNSW Built Environment encourages both discipline-specific and interdisciplinary research within the domain of the built environment.

This program involves a minimum of three years full-time study. Students undertake supervised research leading to the production of the thesis.
The length of a doctoral thesis normally should not exceed 100,000 words of text and should be submitted for examination within 4 years of full-time study.
