To view the admission requirements for the PhD Audiology or PhD Speech-Language Pathology degrees:
Baseline requirements of doctoral candidates is that they are able to research a topic thoroughly by acquiring information from a variety of resources and by integrating this information convincingly by:
- making use of methods of data collection that are appropriate to their disciplines;
- presenting a logical and coherent argument relating to their research topics;
- presenting their arguments in a recognised and acceptable format ;
- making an original contribution to knowledge in the chosen field;
- meeting international standards of scholarship.
Against this background, specific outcomes for the doctoral programme in the Department of Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology are formulated as follows:
- Doctoral graduates must clearly demonstrate an understanding of the scientific and professional literature in communication sciences and disorders that underlie the areas of concentrated study.
- Doctoral graduates must demonstrate a thorough understanding of the scientific process and of the knowledge and research skills needed to apply that process to the generation of new knowledge and new applications of knowledge.
- Doctoral graduates must demonstrate the ability to report the research process and results of the scientific enquiry, both theoretical and empirical, in a cohesive and scientifically acceptable format for dissemination within the broader scientific community.
