Students are expected to develop:
• High-level skills in research processes, including the ability to independently design a research project, conduct experiments/data collection and analyse data from a research project;
• Advanced skills in the analysis and synthesis of knowledge related to the disciplines of study; and
• High-level communication skills, both oral and written for interpretation and transmission of knowledge to specialist and non-specialist audience.
An upgrade to PhD will require the candidate to forego the Masters qualification.
