Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D) Programme

The Department of Geography has fostered an active postgraduate research programme at both the MPhil and PhD levels. There are currently 16 MPhil candidates and 9 PhD candidates undertaking research in a variety of fields that reflects the broad range of interests and skills of staff members and the facilities of the Department.


This programme is strongly research-oriented, though candidates may be required to take additional courses or other instructional sessions as deemed necessary. The programme must be completed within 3 to 7 academic years (full-time) and 4 to 8 academic years (part-time).

Advancement to PhD candidature is conditional upon the passing of a comprehensive examination, and within six months after advancement to PhD candidature, the candidate must submit a thesis proposal.

Qualification for Admission

Candidates seeking admission to the PhD programme must satisfy the University requirements for general admission. Candidates should also possess a master's degree in geography or a related field from this University or other recognized institutions, and will be required to furnish proof of their research capability (in the form of strongly favourable academic references or research publications). There may also be a language test and/or an oral exam.



Teaching Assistantship

Graduate Assistantships and Postgraduate Studentships are available in most Graduate Divisions for full-time students registered for research degree programmes. Students appointed to Graduate Assistantships or awarded Studentships will receive stipends in return for assisting in the teaching and research work of the Graduate Division.
