Postgraduate Degrees by Research
The School of History & Politics has a long and distinguished record of postgraduate education. It offers MA and PhD research degrees in a wide range of fields within the broad disciplines of History & Politics.
Research students in the School have an opportunity to work with leading scholars in their fields and have access to high quality research facilities including the largest library in South Australia. The School offers all postgraduate research students an induction program that assists in developing research skills and in refining their research topic.
Research students are invited to contribute to the regular staff / postgraduate seminar series and to occasional postgraduate conferences.
The School offers both a PhD and a Masters degree by research. In the case of a PhD this would involve a thesis of around 80,000 words, in the case of the Masters degree, a thesis of around 40,000 words.
Detailed information regarding postgraduate degrees by research, including eligibility requirements, is available from the Graduate Studies Centre website, see e.g the research student handbook at http://www.adelaide.edu.au/graduatecentre/
Applications for major round scholarships for research degrees are normally due around the end of October for Australian or New Zealand citizens or permanent residents, but please check http://www.adelaide.edu.au/graduatecentre/scholarships/postgrad/international/
Please note that international scholarships are particularly competitive and relatively few are awarded. To even be in the running for a PhD scholarship, you would normally require a high grade, first class honours degree or an equivalent masters coursework degree with a substantial thesis research component. However, a masters degree by Research and/or publications in scholarly journals would also be an advantage.
