The Dean has the right of authorisation regarding matters not provided for in the General Regulations or in the Faculty Regulations.
A candidate must also pass a compulsory module in Research methodology if it has not been completed on master’s level. However, the Dean may, in exceptional cases and with recommendation of the head of department concerned, waive this prerequisite.
The research proposal (EBW 801) has to be approved by all relevant committees before the candidate commences with the thesis. The candidate will then continue to work under supervision of his/her supervisor(s) to complete the research and to develop and finalise a thesis according to departmental guidelines and regulations. Before or on submission of the thesis, the candidate must submit at least one draft article for publication in a recognised scientific journal. The draft article should be based on the research the candidate has conducted for the thesis and be approved by the supervisor(s). The draft article is a requirement for the degree to be conferred on the candidate. The candidate has to give advance notice, in the appropriate format, about his/her intention to submit the thesis.
The weight of the research component contributes 100% towards the total requirements for the degree. The duration of the degree is a minimum of three years and must be completed in four years.
