PhD by Prior Publication

The PhD by Prior Publication enables established researchers to gain a doctoral degree. It recognises your standing within a field on the basis of a significant record of academic publication at the standard required for a PhD program. Over six to 12 months, you develop a thesis that integrates some or all of your previously published work.

General information is available in our factsheet, while admission requirements are found under the relevant Doctor of Philosophy (Faculty) listings above.
