The Structured PhD is a 4-year full time programme (360 ECTS).
New entrants will normally register for the programme in September of each year.
Each student must obtain a minimum of 30 ECTS through 'structured' modules having a taught or 'skills' component, and a maximum of 90 ECTS, but a recommended normal maximum of 45 ECTS.
The thesis remains central to the award of the PhD.
Students select modules in consultation with their Supervisor and/or Graduate Research Committee from the catalogue of PhD modules
