The MSc and PhD programmes are research-intensive programmes that emphasise both the mastery of research skills and the acquisition of core knowledge in a specified area of interest. Students will complete coursework and conduct independent research under the supervision of a faculty member. From Year 1, both MSc and PhD students will embark on their research projects, complete core modules and choose from a range of elective modules that cater to individual research interests. In Year 2, MSc students will start writing their thesis, while PhD students will complete a PhD Qualifying Examination (PQE) which assesses their ability to complete PhD requirements based on their academic progress and quality of their research. MSc students who wish to transfer to the PhD programme need to complete the PhD coursework requirements, and pass the PQE within 2 years. In Years 3-5, PhD students will execute the rest of their research plans and submit and defend the thesis.
