The Graduate Diploma in Arts by Research degree will enable students with substantial concentration in an area of study to be competent in carrying out research in their chosen area. Students will have achieved a qualification to meet the requirements for entry to postgraduate research programs in the Faculty.
The Diploma involves the writing of a 15 - 20,000 word research thesis under supervision and the completion of two-session length courses. The program is undertaken on a full-time basis over one year or two years part-time.
It is designed as a replica of the honours year program, and the research and supervision are exactly as for an honour student. It is therefore normally expected that the thesis mark will be determined by a committee of the relevant School, after evaluations by at least two thesis examiners (internal or external) appointed by the School.
