Research Training Pathways
Research Training Pathway
As of January 2017, the Research and Research Studies Committee (R&RSC) normally requires the following units to be included in a previous program of study of candidates seeking admission to the research masters (MTh) or to PhD and ThD doctoral courses. The Bachelor Honours 1 year program has been used as the model.
The following combination of units is termed the Research Training Pathway (RTP).
The RTP typically comprises:
- 2 x *****-812 or *****-912 level units, or equivalent, coherent with the proposed field of research in the HDR award. [credit grade or better required in each unit]
- AS001-812 or AS001-912 Introduction to Research Methods [credit grade required]
- A project of no less than 12,000 words in the proposed field of research in the HDR award (i.e **200-824, **200-836, **200-924, **200-936). [credit or better required for entry to MTh; distinction or better required for entry to PhD, ThD]
Where a candidate has satisfied all requirements except completion of a Research Methods unit, prospective HDR candidates may apply to complete the Research Methods unit in the first semester of their MTh, PhD or ThD candidature.
Minimum language requirements continue unchanged for candidates seeking admission to HDR courses in LA, OT, NT or TH fields of research; viz “completed 2 units in Biblical Languages and 2 units in Biblical Language Exegesis at undergraduate level, if seeking to complete a thesis in the unit fields LA, OT, NT and TH.
