The Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) and Master of Philosophy (MPhil) by research degree programmes are designed to bring forth extensive opportunities for mature working adults to assume leadership roles in academic or industrial research. Both programmes will teach students how to investigate a selected research topic using a number of reliable, scholarly resources. Guided by their academic supervisor, they will learn how to search for, review, evaluate, analyse information, and draw new conclusions. Aligned with the mandate of the university, these programmes are conducted in English, via open and distance learning modes of education, but can also be conducted via full-time study.

They empower students with abilities such as researching a topic of interest meticulously and writing a thesis that is expected to contribute to new knowledge in a specific area, as well as having academic insight into the subject matter and conveying their research findings in peer-reviewed and refereed publications. In addition, they upgrade students’ knowledge and skills in the areas of humanities, education and social science to help them advance further in their career.
