The Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) and Master of Philosophy (MPhil) by research degree programmes are designed to extend opportunities to mature working adults so that they can take on leadership roles in academic or industrial research. Students will learn how to investigate a selected research topic using reliable, scholarly resources. With guidance from their academic supervisor, they will learn how to search for, review, evaluate, analyse information, and draw new conclusions. Consistent with the mandate of the university, the programmes are conducted in English, via open and distance learning modes of education, but can also be carried out through full-time study.

The programmes enable students to research a topic of interest to considerable depth and write a thesis that is expected to contribute to new knowledge in a specific area. They also upgrade knowledge and skills in humanities, education and social science to aid in career advancement, as well as enable students to gain academic insight into the subject matter and communicate their research findings in peer-reviewed and refereed publications.
