Welcome to the Doctoral School
The NTU Doctoral School is your home while undertaking doctoral study. Whether you're working towards a PhD or Professional Doctorate, the Doctoral School can help you through every aspect of your research programme.
We will support you through admission and enrolment, during your project approval and annual monitoring, right up until the submission of your thesis and your viva voce examination.
