Introduction


Our research programmes are designed to prepare students for a career in academic research and teaching. The programmes are broad-based and provide a rigorous foundation on which the students can build an academic career of their choice.

 

Our research programmes are:

 

  1. 2+3 Integrated Programme (2-year MPhil followed by a 3-year PhD programme) -  Student will first complete an MPhil programme. After successful completion of the MPhil programme, student will transit to the PhD programme. Hence, the MPhil programme is an integrated part of the PhD programme. The integrated programme enables the student to train for longer, which improves his/her research knowledge, his/her research record, and increases his/her chances of obtaining a better academic position when he/she graduates.
     

    OR

     

  2. Direct-entry PhD Programme
