What is a PhD?

PhDs are a mixture of research and academic learning where you'll research, write and publish an in-depth thesis on a particular topic.

Usually lasting between three-four years, you'll work on your thesis throughout your studies.

Learning out of a classroom environment, you'll be predominately in charge of your own learning, although you'll still have some help from your university, usually in the form of a supervisor or mentor.
