The PhD programme of the Department of Science Communication provides supervision and support for students undertaking original research into an area of science communication. Typically, the PhD is a three-year programme of study. There is no formal coursework associated with the programme.
Applications for PhD study may be received at any time. Before applying, you should make enquiries with staff members to determine appropriate supervisors. A staff member must agree to supervise your project before you can apply to the PhD programme.
Note: International students pay domestic (NZ) fees for PhD enrolments. In addition, both domestic and international students are eligible to apply for a competitive University of Otago Doctoral Scholarship.
