RPG Course Requirements

 

 

MPhil and PhD candidates are required to take five Departmental courses, in addition to the required courses of the Graduate School. Depending on individual student needs, the supervisor may recommend that a student replaces one of these courses with a course in a cognate discipline or one offered by the Graduate School, on the condition that the choice of courses should be confined to those available within the relevant curricula. All required coursework must be completed successfully within the first year of study for full-time students (and the equivalent for part-time students), who must also pass the Departmental Progress Review before confirmation of candidature.
