PhD and doctoral students

Aim high. Go further.

Pursuing doctorate level study requires highly developed academic ability, independence and perseverance. Your thesis must reveal your ability to carry out research. It should also show your originality, independence, and make a significant contribution to knowledge in your chosen field – at least some of your work should be worthy of publication. At Otago, there are a few doctorate-level options available to you.
