PhD Studies

Most research postgraduate programmes at the doctoral level lead to a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD), and universities in Hong Kong offer a wide range of PhD programmes. With major emphasis placed on individual research, some PhD programmes also have a coursework component. Students are required to conduct in-depth investigation of a chosen topic, and to display sustained independent effort and original thought on the subject area. In order to graduate, students are required to present a complete thesis of publication-worthy quality, and to demonstrate to the examination panel that they have a thorough understanding of the context and significance of their research work. PhD students are also expected to produce evidence and arguments supporting an original proposition that results in a significant contribution to knowledge of their chosen subject.

To attract quality students to undertake doctoral studies in Hong Kong, a Hong Kong PhD Fellowship Scheme has been set up by the Hong Kong Research Grants Council. Further information on this scheme can be found on the Hong Kong PhD Fellowship Scheme page.
