A Masters by Research program requires students to undertake an original investigation. In comparison to a doctorate however, this investigation is generally more limited in scope and degree of originality. The work is closely supervised in the early problem formulation stages and whenever a new technique is being used. The program requires the submission of a thesis embodying the results of an original investigation or design.
The minimum requirement for Postgraduate Research Degree (PhD, Master by Research or MPhil) is an appropriate undergraduate degree, usually at honours level, in a field represented within UNSW Built Environment, or another appropriate discipline. In exceptional cases students may be admitted on the basis of professional experience.
UNSW Built Environment encourages both discipline-specific and interdisciplinary research within the domain of the built environment. Cross-disciplinary research is encouraged and collaborative supervision across disciplines and with other disciplines within the University may be arranged when appropriate.
This program involves a minimum of two years of full-time study. Students undertake supervised research leading to the production of the thesis.
The length of a Masters by Research thesis should normally should not exceed 75,000 words of text and should be submitted for examination within 3 years of full-time study.
