The doctorate is an independent, self-directed academic research program, supported by a team of supervisors who make an original contribution to the knowledge written in a publishable thesis. The doctoral program also supports the development of research and generic skills to enable you to act successfully as a professional researcher in any setting. The essential requirement of a doctorate is the creation of new knowledge. Being a researcher means developing new ideas and improving understanding through the creation of new knowledge.
