Theology postgraduate research

Postgraduate research students are a very significant part of the Theology Programme. We have more PhD students than any other programme in the Division of Humanities.

Study on or off campus

Pack on track 2We provide office space for our postgraduate students, which helps to facilitate a lively sense of community among our Dunedin-based postgraduate students.

Many of our postgraduates study via Distance Learning. They visit the campus in Dunedin during the course of their study and also maintain contact with their supervisors via email and phone.

Funding and scholarships

We offer some financial support towards research costs, and are able to help students access other avenues of funding.

  • Scholarships are available from the University of Otago to support your study
  • Travel grants are awarded by the Division of Humanities for postgraduate students to attend international and national conferences in order to give a paper
  • Other postgraduate grants from the Division are available to cover some costs. There is a one year grant for Masters students and a three year grant for PhD students

Research seminars

Postgraduate students are expected to attend and contribute to our research seminars, which take place each Friday from 3.00-4.15pm. The seminars alternate in focus between Biblical Studies and Christian Thought and History.
